Synopsis

Ray is the foreman of a crew of handymen who will take on any job, legal or not. They are hired to do a particularly dangerous job: painting the vast electrical pylons on the Yorkshire moors. Each day they must race the clock before the deadly electrical current comes back on line. Everyone is surprised when Ray allows climber Gerry on the team, as it is unheard of to allow a woman onto an illegal job, never mind such a hazardous one. But when Ray falls for Gerry, everyone gets a little bit dizzy.
