The writing box


England, 1939. Grace, a manipulative schoolgirl, spends her days sneaking out to the cinema and writing plaintive letters to her parents in a bid to join them in India. When her ploy works only in part, she finds herself marooned in their colonial villa, with just her ayah, Raissa, and a strange British cook for company. Beset by the unfamiliarity of these new surroundings, and haunted by her own fantasies about them, Grace begins to act out against her reality with increasing hostility and violence.
