Sophie reflects on the shared joy and private melancholy of a holiday she took with her father twenty years earlier. Memories real and imagined fill the gaps between miniDV footage as she tries to reconcile the father she knew with the man she didn’t.

In the present day, more or less, Sophie is watching old video of scenes from a holiday she took with her dad, 20 years before. The shots play out in the palette of sun-bleached postcards from a family album. Sophie was 11 on that holiday. Dad Calum was about to turn 31. They travelled to Turkey as part of a bus tour. The resort they had been booked into was still mostly a construction site, but with a beach not too far away.

Calum and Sophie's mum are no longer together, but we gather they are very amicably separated. It dawns on us pretty quickly just how young these people must have been, when they became parents.
