The Widow’s Tale

A woman runs out of her house, gets in her car and drives until she reaches the Norfolk coast. She rents a cottage to hide away and contemplate life without her husband.

She’s not sure but she might be having a bit of a breakdown – she’s certainly drinking a little more than she ought. But as her story unfolds we discover that her marriage was not exactly perfect, that her choice of hideaway is far from arbitrary and that she is, in fact, on a mission to tend to unfinished business.
