The privileged and spoiled daughter of an Earl finds herself falling for a humble footman with a secret past, though 'footman' may not be the best way to describe her love interest. When it is revealed that this cautious servant reciprocates these feelings, the two are forced to confront the societal barriers standing in their way.

With humour and grace, three families struggle with the inevitability of death and their inability to express everything they want to. Set in a pastoral hospice, this poignant play examines questions not only of death and loss, but also of love, identity, and each person's place in the world.
