Eyes Closed, Ears Covered

"Let's try to imagine the day as one big jigsaw puzzle.

Start from the beginning.

What brought you to Brighton today?"

Eyes Closed, Ears Covered is a gripping new thriller following two teenage boys as they head from Woking to Brighton with a daring plan to relive a special day from their past.
Seb, a lonely boy who lives in his own world, is bullied at school and longing for friendship. When he is taken under the wing of Aaron, an explosive and unpredictable teenager with no fear, they set off on an adventure that unravels the secrets from Seb's dark past and the truth about his mother.

Eyes Closed, Ears Covered explores how trauma and overwhelming experiences can directly affect vulnerable young minds with shattering consequences.

How far would you go to relive a memory, if that memory was all you had to live for?
