In his council flat in the East end of London, the widowed Harold conducts a life of quiet ritual and lonely comfort. One lunchtime, the routines of his solitude are interrupted by an auspicious arrival. This intrusion shatters the ceremony of his midday meal, but will Harold come to realise that it is not an omen of chaos but of order, and that it has arrived neither too soon nor too late?
