THE EARLY BIRD
People don’t just disappear – do they?
Debbie and Jack face every parents nightmare when their child disappears, leaving them to deal with a gaping hole thats been left in their lives forever.
How will they go on without her, and what happens to a relationship when you realise that youre no longer the people you used to be?
Two lives changed forever, The Early Bird journeys deep inside the troubled minds and fractured relationship of an ordinary couple, unlocking the door to the darkest corners of the human mind.
