It's midnight in London during the summer of 1995 and JACKIE McCANN is on the run.
With only the clothes on his back and a letter from Scotland, he is determined to make his way north to find his true identity. Behind him, he leaves his Aunt and Uncle, who for years told him he was the sole survivor of the car crash that had wiped out his biological family. But now his life has turned upside down upon finding a letter from his father — hidden by his new family.
In Glasgow things aren’t what they seem. Jackie discovers the infamous Ice-Cream Wars of 1984 provide the violent backdrop to his family history, and a mysterious man in black makes his bloody presence felt.
On the run and with his options slowly running out, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival opens up more links to his past and options for his future.
Does Jackie find his true identity?
Will he be reunited with his family?
Will he wish he'd never found that letter in the first place?
Some secrets are best left buried.
