Ben Chambers wakes up to find something rusty and lost underneath the willow tree in his garden. Refusing to throw it on the skip as his wife Amy advises, he takes it home. Ben doesn't want children, or even a job, and now he has found yet another reason for staying in his study and ignoring everyone. It is only when Amy walks out that Ben realises he has alienated all the human beings in his life. He now has only one friend left.
