Synopsis

Very few people hear just what there is and nothing more. Very few.

 

If it's true we leave a trail, does it follow then, that we can always be found?

 

Kenny is a vacuum cleaner salesman with an obsession for security and cleanliness. Always running to escape his past, he has carved a comfortably isolated existence. Imagine his horror when old 'friend' Frank turns up on his doorstep. Clare however, is curiously relieved to see Frank and delivers him a devastating blow when she reveals her own secret.

 

Riddance probes the relationship between the three friends who are drawn reluctantly and inevitably together.

 

No one gets away unscathed
