Nowhere Special is a tender story of a life which is ending and another which is beginning. Window cleaner John (James Norton) knows that his four year-old son Michael will only have the haziest of memories of their time together when he dies of the unspecified illness which is now encroaching on his every day life. He also knows that Michael is his life’s only real achievement, the knocks and the loneliness of his existence etched on John’s face and the tattoos adorning his 34 year-old body. Finding a new family to adopt and care for his boy before he dies will, in some way, ensure it had some meaning. But how do you give your adored son away? And to who?
