The Absolute Beginning of Things

Jennie Roonie's tragi-comic tale of two lovers as they look back on their lives that should have been spent together.

As Michael lies mute, memories stir of his London childhood - the dairy where he grew up, the Morse code he learned with his best friend Brendan and the voice of his father which now echoes over his hospital bed. Meanwhile Stevie, newly widowed and struggling to recall her husband's face, finds herself re-living an older love story.

With Penelope Wilton and David Troughton.

Abridged by Penny Leicester.
