A small boy goes to stay with his grandparents in Southsea, spending his days at his grandfather's failed arcade on the seafront.
When Swatchell, a Punch and Judy professor, sets up his booth in the arcade the boy becomes fascinated by the story played out by these strange violent wooden puppets - particularly when strange parallels start to develop between the story of Mr.
Punch and events in his own family's life.
Mr Punch....Geoff Felix
