A new contemporary dramatisation

Set in England against the backdrop of international turmoil. A young woman whose life has been devastated by the war in Afghanistan, and who has lost her husband and only child, turns to an Irish couple who may be able to offer her a chance of salvation - the promise of a miracle. But the price to be paid for such a miracle could be too much to bear.

A brand new radio adaptation of a classic Agatha Christie short story by Paul Kember. Bridget has an unusual and frightening gift for communicating with the dead, and making the deceased appear in a flesh and blood likeness.
