THE STORY: Jack and Beatrice are twins. They have no grandparents. They have no uncles or aunts and no cousins. And now, they have no mom and dad. The one person who can look after them is their godmother, Sophie, who arrives at their remote rural family home, shocked and unprepared. Sophie has not seen the children since they were tiny—too tiny for them to remember her, and undoubtedly too little to remember what caused her long, enforced absence. But as the three of them return to the isolated home at the end of a forest, their collective grief triggers a tragic attempt to remember, repair and recreate the past.
