Looking for Eric
Eric the postman is slipping through his own fingers. His chaotic family, his wild stepsons, and the cement mixer in the front garden don't help, but it is Eric's own secret that drives him to the brink. Can he face Lily, the woman he once loved? Despite outrageous efforts and misplaced goodwill from his football fan mates, Eric continues to sink.
In desperate times it takes a spliff and a special friend to challenge Eric to journey into the most perilous territory of all - the past. As a certain frenchman says, "He who is afraid to throw the dice, will never throw a six."
Childhood friends Noura and Hamdan have grown up. As time passed, their paths too diverged from what was once a period defined by innocence.
