Storyline

Lucy is an unruly, salt-of-the- earth girl living in Dublin city centre. Zed is a mysterious, dark-skinned girl who shows up in Lucy's garden. She's full of crazy stories and unpredictable behaviour. Eventually, Zed tells Lucy her secret. Zed has run away from a government facility where she was being experimented on in order to give her superpowers. It's worked too since Zed seems able to move things with only the power of her mind. Lucy agrees to hide Zed in her house, keeping it a secret from her mother, but this proves harder than she imagined. Zed leaves a trail of chaos in her wake, leaving Lucy exasperated. And as government officials close in on Zed's location, things spin out of control - The truth finally comes out; Zed (full name; Zedaya) has actually run away from a direct provision facility she lives in with her parents. She has no super-powers, it was just a magic trick, Although both girls have to give up the comforting fantasy they've constructed to help them cope, ... Written by Rodney Lee
