Spanning over 70 years, Cathedrals In The Sky is a coming-of-age psychology of love, loss and parenthood, told from a series of five very different perspectives.


The turbulent saga of Ash, a troublesome, twelve-year-old, trans-racially adopted British-Asian boy, sent to live on a Kent farm by a mother too ill to cope, during the long, hot summer of 1976. There, he discovers a buried WWII Spitfire engine and determines to rebuild it with his Grandfather. But where’s the rest of the aeroplane?

1941: Trinidadian fighter pilot Rudy finds himself reflecting on life, somewhere over the coast of France, limping back to Blighty in a wounded Spit.

2014: St. Mary’s Hospital, Paddington. As Ash surveyed his own son Tom's broken body, he wondered how much he was willing to share, now Tom was old enough to ask awkward questions...
