Book at Bedtime

episode 1. We are our stories. We tell them to stay alive or to keep alive those who only live now in the telling. Nineteen year old Ruth Swain is lying in her childhood home in the small Irish village of Faha in the attic room at the top of the stairs in the bed which her father had to construct in situ and which turned out to be as much boat as bed. She has Something Wrong with her, having collapsed during her fresher year at Trinity in Dublin, and finds herself bedbound in the attic room beneath the rain, in the margins between this world and the next. Ruth is in search of her father. To understand the father she has lost.
