Synopsis

Manchester 1990. Alice is new in town, alone and trying to kick an addiction. One hot summer’s afternoon she is roped into babysitting for her hysterical neighbour. Meeting the two children, Isaac and Suzanne, she learns about their mysterious uncles and a creature called Bells-a-bus that must be fed when the lights go out. As she struggles with withdrawal and is visited by unwelcome guests, Alice must decide whether to abandon her new wards or stay the night.
