In a small northern town in the early 1960s, Billy Fisher escapes his humdrum life as an undertaker's clerk via flights of fantasy, mostly set in his imaginary kingdom of Ambrosia. However, when a beautiful, free-spirited old flame comes back to town, Billy is given a chance to escape for real - but will he take it?
