Surrounded by moorland, Tammersford is as closed off from society as its residents are from each other. Too consumed by their own routines to really understand themselves – and those whom they encounter – the people of Tammersford continue to lead lives marred by monotony, cowardice and poor communication. Just as dismal winter turns to searing summer and back again, passions that run high are soon quelled, and convictions held are all too soon repressed. Only certain among Tammersford’s residents are able to sow the seeds of change, but faced with a degrading environment and a legacy of traditionalist values, the status quo may reign supreme for some time to come.
