A novice local news reporter gets more than he bargains for from the grieving mother of a teenage boy.
Black comedy. Hardened-pro news reporter Tammy initiates the novice reporter Niall into the art of the 'death-knock' - knocking on the doors of the recently bereaved to get a news story.
Niall's lack of success has put his job under threat and Tammy has been detailed to improve his hit rate. When Niall death-knocks Mrs Wright he finds not the grieving, hostile mother he expected but a warm welcome, good food and a comfortable bed, but what's really going on and what are Mrs Wright's true motives?
