Once upon a time, a husband watches as his wife opens a Door. He tries to follow her, waking instead to find his beloved dead beside him.


Days later, The Door appears again. He doesn’t know where it will take him. All he knows is that he’s desperate to see his wife again.


This is a story about a husband’s sorrow, and where it takes him.


This is a story about grief.


This is a story about what we do when faced with the loss of those we love.


Stepping between the fantastical and the real, this modern fairy tale crystalises hope and mourning

into a reflection on life itself.
