The turbulent saga of Ash, a troublesome, twelve-year-old, trans-racially adopted British-Asian boy, sent to live on a Kent farm by a mother too ill to cope, during the long, hot summer of 1976. There, he discovers a buried WWII Spitfire engine and determines to rebuild it with his Grandfather. But where’s the rest of the aeroplane..?

1941: Trinidadian fighter pilot Rudy finds himself reflecting on life, somewhere over the coast of France, limping back to Blighty in a wounded Spit.

2014: St. Mary’s Hospital, Paddington. ‘Cathedrals In The Sky’ was the name of a poem Ash vaguely remembered from his own misspent youth, paying little attention to teachers and more to the capabilities of Swan Vestas. How much was he willing to share with his boy, now he is old enough to ask awkward questions?

Spanning over 70 years, 'Cathedrals In The Sky' is a tightly woven coming-of-age psychology of love, loss, parenthood and identity, told from a series of five very different perspectives.
