Episode 1

Feeling dissatisfied with her life as an film editor in California and with a husband she suspects is having an affair, Judith Whitman decides one day to move her childhood bedroom furniture into a storage unit (it having been discarded by her daughter Camille) and rashly uses a fake name to secure the unit.

She starts reminiscing about her childhood in Nebraska living with her charismatic lecturer father and about her first love, Willy Blunt whom she left behind when she went to college and has never looked back.

Written with distinctive style by Tom McNeal, it's an immersive, atmospheric story in which Judith starts to become more and more disconnected with her chosen life and starts yearning for the past. After the death of her beloved father and the beginning of stress induced migraines at work, Judith retraces her steps back to a few glorious teenage summers.

After 27 years, she tries to get back in touch with significant figures from her past...

Feeling dissatisfied with her life as an film editor in California and with a husband she suspects is having an affair, Judith Whitman decides one day to move her childhood bedroom furniture into a storage unit (it having been discarded by her daughter Camille) and rashly uses a fake name to secure the unit. She starts reminiscing about her childhood in Nebraska living with her charismatic lecturer father and about her first love, Willy Blunt whom she left behind when she went to college and has never looked back.

Written with distinctive style by Tom McNeal, it's an immersive, atmospheric story in which Judith starts to become more and more disconnected with her chosen life and starts yearning for the past. After the death of her beloved father and the beginning of stress induced migraines at work, Judith retraces her steps back to a few glorious teenage summers.

After 27 years, she tries to get back in touch with significant figures from her past...
