An hilarious and unexpectedly moving story of two generations coming to terms with life. Teenager Tod has a few issues in his life, not least an inability to focus on anything that's ... well ... important. His dad has left home and his mum is nine months pregnant. Tod's only friend is Ed, a stroppy old guy who lives in a nursing home. When Ed dies, Tod finds Ed living on in his head - not as a memory, but as a real, noisy, stroppy person. They have conversations - and Ed even gets to enjoy his own funeral! But what is it like when you have to share your teenage head with a dead rocker? Ed thinks he can offer Todd useful advice - especially when it comes to girls. But Ed stuffed up his own life - is he going to make Tod's even worse?
