Alan Lavelle was born with a physical uniqueness. Ostracised at school he struggles to belong but takes solace in his idyllic home life with his devoted father. His life takes an unexpected turn and Alan is taken to the brink when he discovers that everything is not what it seems. As a resident of the Glyndwr Mental Health Facility, Alan finds a belonging of sorts with a select group of inmates. They are dedicated to the appreciation of the culture of decades past, the enjoyment of illicit substances and the worship of Felicity Kendal's bottom. The gang calls him Silent, but that doesn't mean he has nothing to say. Alan proves the inescapable truth that you should always watch out for the quiet ones.
