|Synopsis||Rachel Miller is awoken, one Saturday morning from under the duvet of a double airbed, to the dulcet tones of British Prime Minister, Neville Chamberlain, declaring war on Germany. Why is she there? Why is the room virtually empty? Who is the man standing over her with a mug of tea? Why is he dressed in a Nineteen Thirties suit and trilby? Why is she still fully clothed? Why is there a sealed packet of condoms on the bedside table? Why was the FTSE index Six Hundred and Fifty points in 1986 and Five Thousand Seven Hundred and Fifty points in 2006? What was Rachel drinking the night before? What is a Psychic Medium Analyst? Does Callum Jenkins have all the answers? As Rachel slowly gathers her thoughts, she begins to realise that Callum knows more about her, than she knows about herself.
What has the disappearance of little Ann-Marie in 1952, and the murder of Callum's wife in 2001, got to do with Rachel? As she slowly recounts the events of the last twelve hours, the initial absurdity of her situation and surroundings become abundantly clear. What have Rachel and Callum got in common? Can they both finally bury the ghosts as they confront their problems head on?|
