In the Cheshire countryside surrounding Alderley, something buried for millenia is stirring. But something equally ancient keeps watch. A tale of Christmas haunting, greed, faith, love and horror mixed with a pinch of quantum strangeness.

Storyline

A short drama looking at the current UK immigration system through the eyes of a young asylum worker. Desperate to make an impression during her second week working at the home office, Jamilah's first case brings her dilemma right into focus. When a second case involving a young Syrian man does more to highlight the grey areas inherent in the system, Jamilah resolves to search for the missing evidence that will determine if both are telling the truth, jeopardising her career in the process.
