The play is set in three time zones and examines the experiences of three women. Set in a deserted village in the remote Scottish Highlands and cut off from the modern world, Laura and Suzanne find themselves drawn into the grim history of a croft house. Their stories are interwoven with those of women in the past.

One is an unmarried pregnant girl given shelter in the 1800s, another is a married woman at the beginning of the 21st century having an affair.

Presented by the Original Theatre Company, also starring Caroline Harker who appeared in Middlemarch and a Touch of Frost, and directed by Philip Franks who directed Caroline's Kitchen, The Habit of Art and Birdsong.
