'All brains and no blood…well that’s just no good for anyone.'
Emily and Andy used to say they were soulmates, but the rhythm of their bodies broke them apart and now they’re 'all grown up'. 10 years on and a chance reunion highlights how much their worlds have changed. It’s a struggle to even share the same language, to fit into each other’s lives and those of their (would-be) partners, Dave and Beau. In the midst of all this change, there is one constant, forever calling, the sound of the blood music. But do they control it or it them? And will they listen to it?
With an eclectic soundtrack of nostalgia and new discoveries pumping the blood in their ears, Emily, Andy, Beau and David embark on a gently comic exploration of friendship, love, sex and meaning.
