Pete Boland was busy doing nothing that summer. Long, hot, lazy days stretched ahead of him. Then Nicole called to suggest a night out at the funfair, up at the old recreation ground. A last chance for friends to get together "for old times sake". But where there are old times, there are old tensions and as secrets, bitterness and jealousies resurface, five old friends are plunged into the worst night of their lives.
