Jack's (Bob Hoskins) life is in rapid decline. After his wife dies he is alone and lost in his self-loathing. Racked by past guilt and regret he has lost all contact with his son with whom he had a strained relationship.
Then 8 year-old, Florrie, a soft-natured girl, moves in next door. She discovers Jack's long neglected racing pigeon Ruby and takes a keen interest in the bird. Jack's life continues to brighten up when his glamorous French neighbour, Stephanie (Josiane Balasko) takes pity on him. Jack cannot help but fall for her charms. Encouraged by Stephanie, Jack helps a local hooligan by giving him his prized Ruby.
But Jack's life is thrown into confusion as an innocent friendship with Florrie is misunderstood and Stephanie reveals a well kept secret. Jack finally cracks, consumed with sadness and humiliation, until tragedy forces him to confront his prejudices, face his fears and challenge those around him in a bid to win back Stephanie's love.
