Hard, Cracked the Wind

A dark drama of poetry and the power of voices from beyond the grave. A young Cornish poet is compelled to buy an old writing case, curiously engraved with her own initials. Opening the case and reading the faint traces of a poem on the paper within, calls the previous owner back from the shadows. Haunted into completing a poem from the words she finds, the poet becomes broken and finally succumbs to the endless cycle of creation and death as the case and the curse travel through time, owner to owner.
