Candy Floss tells the story of Simon, a man in his late forties, who takes his four children to Blackpool Beach instead of to their mother’s funeral to avoid the subject of his wife’s death. Simon’s breakdown at the beach leads to the separation of his children at the fairground. He desperately runs around trying to get his family back together, but Adam (15), Belle (10), Louise (7) and Abi (1), all deal with their grief and distress over missing their mother’s funeral service in a different way.
