Alice and Neil should be having the perfect holiday in their summer house in the country, she working with her dancers in the conservatory and he sipping on his tea by the lake, watching the amazing sky. Except it's not really a holiday, Neil is on a year's leave from work, pending further tests in his mysterious condition, and Alice, well she has her own problems.

How does a simple question turn into a witty verbal joust and delivers no answers? Are Ali and Neil stuck? Will they simply learn to live with their situation, or is there, perhaps, a way out of it?
