This is the story of a rational, sceptical woman, a mother and wife, who does not remember her dreams. Except once, when she dreamt her horse was dying. She woke so scared she went outside in the night. She found him dead. The next dream told her she would die herself, when she was 48.
A co-production by Amy Hardie Productions, Passion Pictures, and Hard Working Movies, in collaboration with the Scottish Documentary Institute
