A quest, a love story and a eulogy to old shoes.

Dancing with skeletons in the closet, what happens when we bring the dead back to life? Picture the scene: 1942, war torn Britain. Two worlds collide when Harold, a working class coal miner sticks out his thumb and meets Catherine, an upper class Oxford scholar driving a pick-up truck. Half a century later, they die when their granddaughter Anna is only 4 years old. Now she's an adult, and a theatre maker, and she's nosy. So she decides to get to know them by having a rummage into old letters, cassette tapes and photographs. But then she comes across a letter she wishes she hadn't seen.
