life after life

Life After Life

It's easy to forget that not everything that weighs you down is yours to carry. Emotional pain rarely discriminates. Whatever creed. Whatever status. Whatever person. It takes no prisoners. Jonny Lumb is discovering this the hard way. He sees his life's potential being eroded at every factory clock in. A series of catalysts that are out of his control have now brought him to the brink of no return. We meet him on a particularly dark day. We hear his struggles. We see his demise, but will we see the Black Dog bite? Will he dare to live or will he dare to die?
