An eminent High Court judge is asked in a moment of marital crisis to rule on the case of a teenage Jehovah's Witness who is refusing to have a life-saving blood transfusion, atypically bonding with him. A thought-provoking drama adapted from the Ian McEwan's novel, it’s a heartfelt lament for loves lost and lives unrealised.
