Huge crowds are gathering in Hyde Park where Pope Benedict XVI will deliver a sermon and the excitement is mounting. Meanwhile in a house in the Midlands, Catholic Ruth is trying to get her difficult children and elderly father into the car. Her teenage daughter Beth would rather watch the Hollyoaks omnibus than see the Pope, Will’s OCD is making him anxious and their domineering Grandfather is rapidly losing his patience. When Beth’s secret boyfriend Jarir turns up unannounced arguments break out and secrets are uncovered that threaten to tear the family apart.
