What if you were buried in your own skin?
What if the doctors thought you were in a persistent vegetative state but actually you could hear every word, feel every breath on your skin and sense every change of light through your closed eyelids? What if your mind was still active, still wandering and thinking?
When Kath sees a flicker in Ian’s eyes, she’s sure he’s still ‘in there’ and wonders if he wants to live. But she forgets to ask herself the same question.
Some Other Stars explores a ‘locked-in’ marriage and Kath and Ian’s heroic attempts at escape.
