A mini radio soap opera in 10 minute episodes, written, performed and produced by Flloyd Kennedy.
Helen is in her 70s, happily living on her own, except when her family decide to invade her space “to look after her”, or because they want her to fix them.
Episode 1: Helen is having enough trouble coping with her ageing body and mind, let alone her bossy daughter who is staying with her in the latest lockdown, when a disturbing phone call creates a challenge and leads to a new lease of life on her own terms.
