It is the end of the summer. The tourists have already gone, and now the sun is abandoning the Lake District's damp valleys.
Only a lone camper remains, enjoying the quiet. He plans to stay just long enough to prepare for a trip to the East.
But then the owner of the campsite asks him to paint a fence and he innocently obliges.
Soon other odd jobs pile up until little by little he becomes ensnared in the ominous 'out-of-season'.
