Colchester Essex England - Local boy makes bad! Ex Colchester Royal Grammar School pupil Paul Pisces' life slowly descends into a web of computers, alcohol, alcoholism and depression. The brothels of Amsterdam, however, provide some sexual excitement. Eventually following redundancy he takes up sex tourism in the Far East to relieve the boredom. A brief respite is encountered when he finds a job in San Francisco during the internet boom and bust fiasco but ultimately he returns to his alcoholic ways and books a flight back to Bangkok. From here it is just a short coach ride to Pattaya and a short step to suicide with a shotgun.
