The play follows a man returning to his childhood home in Sussex, where he is reminded of the treacherous events that occurred on his 12th birthday. He used to play by the country banks with his friend Lettie, but what she claimed was a pond was, in fact, a vast ocean. Plunged into a mystical and unfamiliar world, their very survival relies on their instinct, abilities and bravery in the face of great destruction.
