Semi-dramatised film which sets out to depict the subjective experience of a young boy from Liverpool who crosses the River Mersey to visit the fun fair at New Brighton. He visits the fairground and beach armed only with a one pound note, but manages to go on a donkey ride, see animals at the Woodland Zoo and enjoy rides on the fairground.
