Jemima gets out everyday come rain or shine on the same route to her local shop. But this day, reeling from bad news from her doctor, Jemima wanders the city in a daze until she finds herself at her childhood safe place - the local Sea Life Centre. Amongst the bright little fishes and echoing corridors, she is mysteriously drawn towards a telepathic shark who confirms her place in this world and reassures her about the next.

Filmed in micro cinema with specially made sets, foley soundtrack and unfathomably auspicious music, this story is both beautiful and profoundly moving.

Filmed during lockdown and shown as part of the Braw Tales series commissioned by Mull Theatre, Scotland. 2021
