The title is a reference to Carrie Fisher's semi-autobiographical novel Postcards from the Edge and "ledge", a slang abbreviation for "legend."



The year is 2029. Ross is fifty; his wife Sorcha is Taoiseach; his triplet sons are at the centre of the Castlerock College Junior Cup team. Ross is asked to sell a house in Sallynoggin — his childhood home. This brings up old memories.
