Fifteen-year-old Daniel has earned a small fortune from trapping moles – but hates spending any of it. He stashes the cash in a biscuit tin in his bedroom, and stores the moles in the deep freeze, alongside fish fingers and the family’s frozen meals.
Dr Mark Pritchard earns a handsome living as a research scientist for a major pharmaceutical company. Despite this, he has chosen to live in an ex-British Gas van, parked in a lay-by within convenient commuting distance to work so that he doesn’t have to pay rent.
In this film, what starts out as a study of eccentricity turns into an altogether more intriguing exploration of the origins of this condition.
