Three dead rats, strung up on a little bit of string.
Hunger in your belly, a Dairy Milk bar every Friday and the smell of stale cigarette smoke on your mother’s breath the day you were born – and you end up asking yourself: was it worth it?
‘Jellyfish’ tells the story of one woman who finds herself alone late one night recounting every single moment of her life.
