Description

An experimental nosedive into Jamie's fractured past. Struggling to assimilate at Cambridge University, Jamie makes an unlikely connection with a former Etonian – Bertie. As Jamie battles to discover himself, he can't seem to escape the past: a past he can't quite piece together. With the absence of his estranged father, Ruairidh, starting to take its toll, Jamie's relationship with his single mother Bridie is pushed to the limit. Lean in and exhale as you sink into Jamie's distorted world whist he fights, with everything he has, to keep his head above water.
