Grand Slam

By FHW Marketing

SYNOPSIS

Four men, members of a Welsh rugby union club, fly to Paris as part of a weekend outing to see Wales play France in the Five Nations Championship match that will decide the Grand Slam title.

One of the party is funeral director Caradog Lloyd-Evans, who briefly served in occupied Paris near the end of World War II. Caradog pays for his son Glyn's air ticket on the proviso that Glyn  comes on a 'pilgrimage' to find his 'little butterfly' who he spent a short romantic period with during the war.
