Sometime around now, Georgia Madden (who used to be Georgie) flees her Dublin home, embarking on a road trip spiked with the hidden dangers of her past and her present. In the 1970s, as the Madden family begins to disintegrate, a disruptive stranger arrived who will bind them, briefly.

While the underground bomb ticks down, an elderly German woman, Anna Bauer, recounts her own war story to a film crew. And all along, fizzing and popping in a parallel reality, we, the 'visitors', are led through an unsettling and volatile Museum of Curiosities. The past crosses and weaves with the present; generations are bound together and cleaved apart; future selves remember and forget who they once were.

Forgiveness is sought, offered and withheld - and as they unspool, the fragmented lives of four people become a haunting whole, where time is unknowable.
