It explores the intriguing breadth and depth of a committed therapeutic relationship, in the search of self-understanding and self-love. And it gives brave voice to the fragile nature of humanity, standing witness to an ‘ordinary’ experience of the ‘Troubles’, to the human impact of terrorism and political war.
