ORAN MOR, April 2016.
Lisa is forty, and edging towards a midlife crisis. The world, she thinks, is judging her childless state. In a desperate bid to conform, she lures her brother-in-law, Mark, to a dingy hotel room in the middle of a ring road to carry out a plan. As the night unfolds she pushes every button she can to get him to agree to do it.
