A first radio play by Hannah Vincent.
Sylvia (Claire Rushbrook) is in hospital suffering from memory loss. She cannot remember anything about her life. The treatment she is undergoing is radical - she is suspended above the floor, hanging by her neck. Medical staff assure her that this way 'everything will fall into place'.
As she hangs, Sylvia is visited by a series of figures, including her husband (Philip Jackson), her daughter (Emerald O'Hanrahan) and a man (Carl Prekopp), calling himself her friend, whom she cannot recognize.
But are these people real or phantoms? It soon becomes apparent that part of the space of the play is Sylvia's unconscious, the land of her memory. As she comes to understand this, she slowly starts to remember the appalling events that have occurred -
