Summary

– What’re you doing here Robert?
– Well to be frank with you, I’ve really no idea. I thought I would just suddenly appear, so I did. I suddenly appeared.

A family Christmas is interrupted by the unexpected arrival of Uncle Bob. Who is he? Why has he come? Why does his wife stay out in the car? And what is the meaning of his long and outrageous message? All we can be sure of is that the world will never be the same again.
