'Just to go from Birmingham to Monmouth was an adventure. You don't understand, we'd never been in a studio, we'd never been on a farm!'

Ozzy Osbourne

Both looking for a fresh start in this new land of opportunity, the pair are soon caught up in events beyond their control, and start to question: do we make our fortunes, or do our fortunes make us?
