'James Dean' follows the Faulkners as they desperately try to leave for their family holiday. Efforts to co-ordinate the trip are thwarted by their inability to get all members into the car at the same time. Frustrated by their dawdling, 14 year old daughter Alex has picked this inopportune moment to tell her elder sister Morvern, Mum and Dad her secret. However, with a distracted and currently disinterested family, she realises the only way to tell them is to show them.
