After failing to make it as a Butlins Redcoat, Johnny goes back to his home town and reluctantly signs up to teach pottery to a group of sad and hopeless night-class students.

This scourge of the ceramic community soon manages to wreak havoc, leaving a trail of emotional carnage behind him and the Adult Education syllabus shattered forever...
