Synopses & Reviews
In the hope of forging a lasting bond with his new grandchild, Joseph Soap begins to document his life and lessons learned along the way in a autobiography, which he hopes will one day form a detailed entry on his family tree. Joseph shares advice based on experience garnered from the milestones in his life, and from each bump in the road he manages to produce practical guidance on a whole host of subjects, including the importance of standing up to bullies, the benefits of an appeasing white lie and the belief in one's own self-worth. From the sadness of loss and family emigration, to the annoyance of selfie sticks and celebrity culture, Joseph somehow retains a calm and humorous head above water, as he reminisces about his past and laughter long since bellowed into the sky. The decades unfold as Joseph recounts an ever-changing life amid an ever-changing world. As a S.O.A.P. - or Senior Old Age Pensioner as he refers to himself in an attempt to rebel against a seemingly ageist and shallow society - Joseph takes us on a journey of his lifetime, proving that even everyday people live lives worth documenting for future generations to come.
