Directed by Katie Posner

Why now? Why here? What does she want from him?

He was 40. She was 12. It wasn't right, but despite what they said he was never 'one of those'. Ray has done his time. Now, 15 years later, he just wants to get on with his new life. But today she has come and found him again.

George Costigan (Emmerdale, Rita, Sue and Bob too) takes on the role of Ray in this unflinching portrait of two people trying to make sense of a painful past.
