All Applications due by 20th October.

Danny is a 22 year old estate agent living in a English town. His life is fine. But just that, fine. It will continue to be fine until the day he dies.

That Friday was like so many before it. Mum and Dad barely talking and Charlie (his fifteen year old brother) begging Danny not to make him go to school. The bullies would be there in real life not just online. Charlie hates everything about life except the X-box and Danny.

At work Danny flirts with Kate as usual. He doesn't know if he likes Kate, but she’s pretty and she’s there. Danny is a breath of fresh air to Kate whose life consists of work and caring for her alcoholic mother. For that she loves Danny.

After work he and Ian, his best friend, kick a football about. Ian tells Danny he doesn’t know how he’ll find a house with his now pregnant girlfriend, Tina. His delivery job barely pays enough for food and pot. At the pub Danny tells Ian he saw his whole life stretching out before him. Ian catches the bus home but Danny doesn’t follow him.

Tragedy strikes

While Danny lies in a coma his friends and family are cut adrift, lost in a world without light. Life moves from stagnant miopia to a frantic search for something more.

Charlie faces his demons and stands up to his bullies. Ian finds freedom from his monetary problems through an old friend with serious consequences. Kate finally stands up to her mother and fulfils Danny’s dream. Dad escapes into the arms of an old flame but finds the past is not a place he can live in. Mum, wracked with grief, considers following Danny’s escape route.
