Lust, hate, betrayal, greed, love, kindness and lashings of humour abound. In the company of two Plymouth low lifes Parallel Horizons takes us ever eastward through the cultural patchwork of Europe. The story is a rich, dark comedy uncovering hidden history alongside a tale of 'international aid' from the First to the Third World. Lurking beneath its many layers the miracle and futility of life is explicit. Here, and out there, lives will be transformed for ever.
