Synopsis

Poet Lemn Sissay observes Britain on the move at the Watford Gap motorway services, capturing its sounds and stories as he talks to people in transit.

A compulsive people-watcher, Lemn buys himself a coffee and observes modern Britons collide. Serenaded by the howls from arcade games and the quiet chit chat over burgers and cappuccino, the poet arrives for a 24-hour stint. He catches people in transit, but as they wait, the sound of the motorway still ringing in their ears, he wonders what fantasies, fears and fun will fuel their conversation.
