Lance Corporal James Randall left tours of duty in Helmand six years ago. But as he's about to discover, Helmand is still far from leaving him. On Remembrance Sunday he delivers a birthday message to his young son from his living room in London; a last-ditch attempt to reconcile their broken relationship. Surrounded by action figures and boyhood memorabilia, James unfolds a fragmented story where the worlds of civilian Britain and frontline Afghanistan brutally, and catastrophically, collide. Much Further Out Than You Thought shines a different light on the very human cost of war.
