Lucy is in her twenties and holidaying with her parents in the Seychelles following a rather traumatic break up with her fiancé. Dad George knows the island paradise well having lived and worked there back in the 1970s. However he was forced to leave in 1977 due to a political upheaval and he’s never been bak since until now.
