This is just an ordinary park on an ordinary day: a man with a baby circles the park; a man huddles on the bandstand; a woman walks her labrador across the grass; a skater practices his moves in the skate park.
But look more closely and traces of magic appear: snowy footprints on the grass; a glimpse of a large animal in the trees; a ghostly figure walking out of the locked up house; the crack of ice…
Solo – A mysterious story inspired by Lightwoods Park. To be listened to alone.
