"I have lived with these trees and watched them grow. You have been away from here for too long, you don’t see it. Or you have simply forgotten…"
Responding to a call-out, a repairman finds himself inexplicably drawn to an old woman and her house in the woods. At first it seems like a simple fix, but as a storm starts to close in, he is forced to confront the ghosts from his past.
Dark and unsettling, Fix is the debut psychological thriller by Bruntwood Prize longlisted writer, Julie Tsang. A tale of guilt and childhood memory – can we ever really mend what is already broken?
