There’s panic in Stepney: tearaway Charlie Gooding is back from two years at sea. The trouble is that Charlie isn’t up to date with the news. He doesn’t know, for instance, that the street where he lived has been pulled to the ground since he left, and all that is left of his house is a pile of rubble in a sea of modern flats. And, he's about to find out that his wife Maggie has set up house with Bert, a local bus driver, in one of the new skyscraper blocks.
