Patrick makes a horrible error when he calls one lover while thinking of another. His wife, who discovers this fact, follows the discarded date through a South Bank throng, where all manner of interesting characters – a Bird Whistler flogging his goods, a trainee barista on the verge of marriage, a Deputy Major-stalking actress – are going about their business.
