Madame George is a psychic in a slump. It's been 2 years, 7 months and 11 days since her mum died and she's still not bothered to get in touch. Then there's the neighbour, the annoyingly persistent and intrusive Mr Doyle, who also happens to be her last remaining client. Things are in a rut when a message from the other side finally does come through... question is: will Madame George want to hear it? A comedy about how far we will go for what we choose to believe in.
