    Brian Watkins 

  • Setting

    A very old house on the banks of a large river, just north of a big city. Time: Now-ish (2019).

  • Synopsis

    Snow falls softly on an uncanny evening. In an old city house, adrift in a modern world, a cheery host gathers a group of friends to try and reignite a forgotten tradition. But when the guest of honour, Gabriel, is unusually late, the participants find themselves unmoored and craving answers. And there just might not be enough wine, or goose, or time, to fend off some long-neglected anxieties that haunt their souls.
