A memoir of a family friend Ned Wethered. Ned frequently visited Lee’s home and brought with him mysterious things ‘he had been working on’. The film concentrates on the detail of these visits and on Lee’s family life. From watching Ned arrive through the back gate and him playing with their family cat, to Lee’s mother hanging out the clothes and doing the dishes the film builds up a poignant and often funny picture of the man Ned. “Why do I now remember him?” is the enigmatic question Lee leaves us with at the end.
