Plot – Spoilers:
If you’re a cleaner working the late-shift at Heathrow airport, you’d think your night has hit its peak should you find one of the toilets plastered with shit. A Polish immigrant Lena who’s working her way through college and hopefully a better life is therefore pleasantly relieved when a friendly coworker Birdie offers to clean up the crap she just encountered.

The two get chatty and Lena later meets Birdie’s brother who’s quiet and attractive in a damaged and silent, maybe dumb way. When Lena misses the last bus home, mostly through Birdie’s fault, she reluctantly takes up Birdie’s offer to stay over at her place. And meet Birdie’s Mum and Dad who apparently have been so caring, Birdie never bothered with an education or felt the need to move out. For Lena, who’s estranged from her family, this seems a warm idea.

    Have to admit even though I love British cinema ( I’ m biased;) I got about half way through this and had to stop ,made me feel very claustrophobic indeed.Reminiscent of what those poor kids who belonged to those murderous paedophile monsters Free & Rose West just have endured ?

    Not yet see anything Perry Benson is in that isn’t entertaining.

    Typical English family, more of a documentary than a piece of fiction.
