When adolescent fantasy becomes grown-up reality, it highlights something basic in how we often live - the setting for a ‘really good' way of life whilst knowing there is more. More being the dream, the fantasy of the ‘better than really good' man-woman relationship. It follows two very bright graduates from ordinary backgrounds as they experience a very extraordinary encounter and journey with the focus of their immature daydreams. The Cinderella story is, of course, flawed. Jake is married and that is absolute. Anne and her irreverent friend, Fin, are drawn into a milieu of sensual awakenings, intrigue, fear, tragedy and, of course, the deepest of loves.
Poetry, tongue-in-cheek philosophising, coarse humour and bad language, pathos, human yearnings and the exposure of that part of our psyche which always dreams, imagines, plus lots of music, laughter and pathos are the keystones of this unforgettable story.
