Randoulf, a young black man, is in hospital, a convicted murderer – he struggles to understand his crime and his imprisonment within the mental health system. His doctor unravels the incidents leading to his murder and his mental collapse. In flashback, we discover the reasons for his intervention in a domestic dispute, which has tragic consequences. The play asks questions about the way black people are perceived and treated in the mental health system.
