Bill and Fred are two characters who struggle to embark on a journey. As they get ready to embark on a new adventure, they realise they’ve forgotten their backpacks. Confusion, conflict and misunderstanding ensue but as always Bill and Fred pull through. The show reflects on relationships, compromising, forgiveness and friendship.
