Close to Home (2005)
Say you were thousands of miles from home. What would carry your heart back instantly? The memory of some detail, perhaps - dawn chorus of kookaburras, sunrise over the Bosphorus, the smell of fish fingers for tea… Close to Home uses three personal stories to track the mysterious homing instincts of the heart.
The life story of a man called John. And an apple tree.
The story of a man and an apple tree are told side by side. Full of the usual things that lives contain - blizzards, bicycles, rock’n’roll, train sets, heatwaves, love, blossom, accidents, hurricanes, fruit, babies and false teeth. A delightful story told without the need to utter a single word.More Information Book Now
