This is the story of a young boy (around 8 or 9 years of age) who loses his Dad. This tragic event is set in the backdrop of the Welsh Valleys of the early 60s. The young boy finds it hard to accept that his Dad has gone and one day he comes home from school to find his Dad in the kitchen chatting to his Mam. His Mam tells him it is his Dads twin brother but the boy does not believe it or does not wish to believe it. The soundtrack of the 50s & 60s music is great, the Everly Brothers "Let it be Me" & Gerry & The Pacemakers "Dont Let the Sun see you Cry" being two songs that I remember. Rhys Ifans is in one of his earliest roles. Although the film is only 30 mins, you just remember it. The writing is great. It is just so touching, if you put yourself in the boy's position that his Dad has gone but he has one last chance to see him, as he believes his Dad has come back from Heaven one last time to say goodbye. Bless.
