Judith Adams' dramatisation of the thriller by master of Italian noir, Carlo Lucarelli.

Simon is a blind man with synaesthesia, a condition which enables him to hear sounds in colour. A loner and a radio-hack, Simon spends his nights alone in his room surfing the air-waves of Bologna - picking up mobile phone conversations, chat rooms and police walkie-talkies.

He listens into other people's business, tracing the shape of the city through his headphones. He begins to follow the journeys of two voices - one blue, one green. The first compels him, the second terrifies him, and both voices become instrumental in propelling Simon out of the safe interior of his bedroom into the world outside
