By Nell Leyshon.
Frank Lovell lies ill in bed, surrounded by his son who has learning difficulties, his daughter and son- in law.
As the morphine enters his bloodstream, suppressed memories of a past tragedy resurface.
Entwined with the story of the young Frank and his sister Iris are fables - Bible stories and the legends of Kings Arthur and Alfred.
Amongst the portrait of a family and the secrets and lies that bind them together, is an examination of Englishness and a rural landscape which is fast disappearing.
