Hilary runs a movie theater by the sea. Once a magnificent movie theater with several screens and a dance hall overlooking the sea, today there is only one screen left, albeit a large one. Hilary and her colleagues are sprucing up the theater for the local premiere of Chariots of Fire. Outside, however, the town is decaying, the number of right-wing extremists is on the rise, and Stephen is regularly harassed by skinheads.
