Synopsis


Try a story. Yes, a story.


We listened to stories when we were young and pink and bawling and now we don't cry in the night.


Two new parents are up in the middle of the night and their baby daughter won't stop crying.


They try to soothe her with stories, but the stories tell of a dark and hopeless world outside.


Their fears and anxieties come to life and seep into the nursery through the cracks.


Maybe bringing a child into this world wasn't such a good idea?
