GYPO, told in three revelatory narratives, each from a particular character's point of view, reveals how the disintegration of an ordinary working class family finally comes to a head when unexpected emotions are unleashed. Helen (Pauline McLynn) has been married to Paul (Paul McGann) for 25 years. They live a monotonous and frozen existence. Helen is desperate, damaged, and looking for change. Paul - bitter and bigoted, sick and tired of being in the poverty trap - is on the brink of a breakdown. His biggest fear is change. One day, their teenage daughter brings home her new friend Tasha, a Romany Czech refugee, awaiting her British passport and her chance for freedom.
