Joyously strange: a dark/beautiful tale of life, murder, surprises and the bliss of a golden sunrise. It’s a beautiful day when Jimmie dies – and comes to life again. A hot summer morning on which Davie steps boldly out of his front door, into the familiar little Tyneside town he’s lived in all his life. But a boy has been killed – and when Davie hears the news, he thinks he knows who did it. So he turns away from the gossip and hubbub, and sets off roaming the sunlit hills above town. He’s looking for a murderer. What could be more starkly real? But as the day goes on, the real and imaginary start to merge…
