It’s request night on St Bevan’s Hospital radio and DJ Danny Walkman’s show is in full swing. His gags and record collection might be criminal, but under it all there’s a heart of gold, a quiet sadness and a real care for people.
After his show, Danny has a chance encounter in the Garden of Hope with Peggy. A plain-speaking firecracker, Peggy’s been sleeping rough for years and isn’t afraid to call a spade a shovel.
They’ve nothing in common of course. Except music. Everyone likes music, don’t they? Everyone’s got a song, and if there’s one thing Danny Walkman is good at, it’s getting people to tell him what their song is.
Peggy doesn’t give much away, so it’s a race against time for Danny to crack the code, get past all her years of bad times and to find and play Peggy’s song.
