Set in the the South Wales village of Lower Cwmtwrch during a spectacularly awful New Year’s Eve party, hosted by local-boy-turned-cheesy London DJ Steve Dennis, Canaries explores how ordinary people living in a rural community would deal with a catastrophic intergalactic invasion. Steve and his motley crew of drunken guests find themselves under attack from a band of malevolent aliens who create doppelgangers of previously abducted humans; in this case, fishermen wearing bright yellow rain coats. Add a shady American surveillance operation to the mix and it’s not looking good for our Welsh heroes.
