“In this country, you go as far as they let you.”

Friday night and someone’s having a party. It seems like a laugh, but not everyone’s having fun.

Gary and Nicky have been together since school. Gary’s going for a promotion so he can get his family out of their council flat and give Nicky everything she deserves.

Anjum and Mo are used to aiming for the best. And doing whatever it takes to get it.

Gary’s sister Karen is more interested in having a life than fighting for any cause.

Mark is just…always there.

And Victoria, Victoria wants to dance with somebody…

“It’s a good place. Keep watching and one day it’ll be ours.”

Two villages/towns - Dull, in Perth, Scotland and Boring in Oregon, USA, have been twined since 2012, but have recently added a new addition to the family, or "League of Extraordinary Communities"  - Bland Shire in New South Wales, Australia, making it, of course, Bland, Dull and Boring! However, the question is... Where in the World will you find Lake Disappointment?
