Dr Roger Cosgrove is a middle aged academic who is grieving intensely over the death of his wife Caroline even more than a year after her death from cancer. Depressed and disillusioned with life generally, he quits his University position prematurely as an IT expert, sells his house in Edinburgh, and relocates to a small cottage in the beautiful Dorset coast where he decides to live a solitary life. But his repetitive routine is suddenly disrupted when his younger son Adrian sends him a mysterious package which contains a combined home video recording of five separate film reels of his young family taken by Roger’s father in the 1960s. While the images of himself as a boy and youth, and those of his family, including of his dead sister Margaret, fill Roger with nostalgic memories, there are some disturbing features about the films which come to light particularly when he dreams about them every night. He is constantly told to be careful and that he is in some kind of imminent danger. But credible answers to these riddles only come to light over twenty years later when Adrian is sorting out his father’s possession soon after Roger’s death. Both Adrian and his father need to decide whether seeing what appears to be definitely true is tantamount to reality, or whether natural common sense always trumps what is logically impossible.
