Storyline

A shadow seems to follow Peder wherever he goes. Whilst happiest in the open landscapes around the Quoit close to his home, he cannot shake the presence of a bull - An Tarow - that threatens to overwhelm him and his mother Cara. He knows his father is violent and has become numb to what happens downstairs after he's gone to bed. Yet his mother keeps him as removed as she can through their shared love of folk tales. Gradually his mother's stories of Bucca's, Piskies and Knockers give Peder an entirely new means of escape, along with a growing sense of strength. His journeys to school become a hunt for any sign of their presence and whilst still wary of what he hears from downstairs, he begins to imagine confronting what he was previously fearful of.
