Stigma, exile, racism, infidelity ... these are stories about bright human lights that failed, the conflict between what we wish for and end up with.
A young woman breaks down during a visit to Spain, a man who sees himself as a leader of men runs away towards an embarrassing encounter with the law, a well-to-do housewife confronts the vacuum at the centre of her idyllic marriage.
These stories concern the difficulty of learning from the past and escaping who we are, through fantasy, domestic life or exploring other worlds. There is a strong Northern Irish content as old wounds from Ulster's darkest days reopen on a new life in the Republic.
Overall the theme is that of internal exile, the 'outsider' in contemporary society.
