A group of building workers have one thing in common - their dreams for the future. Tom wants to move with his wife to a "superior" neighbourhood; Nipper longs for a beautiful girlfriend; and Paddy thinks only of returning to his native Ireland. But Ken, the foreman, is cruelly determined to make them see that their dreams can never be fulfilled.
