Stumbling through life, as he has been until now, his mimicry of celebrities and colleagues alike has been a rather fruitless pursuit. His one true friend in life is a girl called Jean, the only other 'friend' Martin can really boast of is Neil a downtrodden newsagent petrified by the news, but enthralled by Martin's voices.
However, in a huge revelation from a former lover, Martin is about to discover that he could in fact be the father of an eighteen year-old son.
With their first meeting on the horizon, is this the news that will finally kick start Martin into adulthood? And if it is, just how will he use his voices to cope with this life changing development?
