On a beach in southern England a dog returns to its owner with a human hand in its mouth. The hand belongs to Henry, the homeless eccentric who has been wandering south west England for the last 30 years. A local policeman and his colleague, in piecing together his movements prior to his death, uncover an extraordinary life. But as their investigations also shed light on their town, the story of Henry, and those who tell it, begins to affect the policeman's own life in ways he never expected.
