Derek cares deeply for the home's residents, because they are kind and funny and tell him stories of what life used to be like. Among those in his life are Kev (David Earl), a lovable train wreck who lives with Derek and spends most of his time lazing around the home; and Hannah (Kerry Godliman), a care worker in the home and Derek's best friend.
