by Carolyn Scott-jeffs In the First World War a pilot hangs between life and death as his plane hurtles towards the ground.

A strange vision, combined with echoes of the poems of Jeffrey Day help him to come to a decision about whether to live or die.

Meanwhile, in 2003, a young heroin addict reads the poetry of Jeffrey Day and contemplates suicide.

She is transported by a reluctant angel back to 1917 where they find the suicidal pilot - who thinks Day was writing about flying not dying.

An ultimately uplifting and optimistic play.
