Synopsis

Two houses, perched on top of mountains, stare at each other across a deep valley.

A man and a woman talk about the small things - parquet flooring zigzagging down corridors, the memory of mother's breasts, brown sauce and soggy chips. But these minutiae disguise a bigger story of brutality and unfaltering loyalty which emerges horrifically through the chit-chat.

Part of the Paines Plough This Other England season
