Mary Clarkson is awaiting the return of her husband, Bill, after two years inside. She had told her three children, Tony, Bernadette and Raymond, that he had gone away to sea to save their feelings. They are a family divided by religion - half Catholic, half Protestant, and by football - half Everton, half Liverpool.
