Oceane, successful computer graphics designer and former dancer, likes to travel, but doesn't like to go out; in fact she never leaves home.
Her solution is to bring the world to her South London flat using satellite, the internet and passing foreigners.
Her lifestyle suits her until she starts getting letters from an ex - an ex who died ten years ago.
Utilising the services of Audley, failed mercenary and debt collector, Oceane has to start searching the world.
Weaving from the sex clubs of Barcelona to the battlefields of Yugoslavia, this is a meditation on a random world, why ketchup is important and why the Audit Commission rated Lambeth Council as one of the worst in the country.
