Jennifer has become fixated on completing the Observer cryptic crossword. It’s not that she likes them. She hates them actually, but it’s her way of keeping close to her partner Tina, who died suddenly nine months ago. When Jennifer finally completes the puzzle it’s a breakthrough moment, but to be in the running to win the prize her entry has to be in the post box - old-school, hardcopy - by the end of the day. Will it be the impetus she needs to confront her grief and finally leave the house where she’s been cocooned with her memories?
