Documentary. In the 1980s filmmaker Carol Morley lived in Manchester, in an almost constantly drunken state. She tries to discover what happened to her in that five year period, which she can only hazily recall. She rediscovers old friends and acquaintances who relate stories of her drunken and promiscuous behaviour. Gradually she pieces together the lost years with conflicting memories and viewpoints arising within the context of the people and culture of the city at the time.
