'It looks impossible to get out, ' he says. And also: 'But we'll get out.'
Two brothers, Big and Small, are trapped at the bottom of a well, stalked by madness and with no means of escape. Struggling for sustenance and clinging to sanity, Big forges a plan to free his little brother. Fast-paced and rich in metaphor, this extraordinary new story poses questions of fight, survival and solidarity when people are faced with devastation.

Powerful, disquieting and highly original, Repila's unique allegory explores with bravery and emotion the depths of human desperation and, ultimately, our almost unending capacity for hope.
