THE CARETAKER

A man and his shed, surrounded by his tools. They call him Mr Fix It. He builds, he mends, he fixes. He stays calm under pressure. And yet before him is a crack, and as he gets older, it gapes wider. He presses his face against the cool wall to seek its source and as he chips away at the plaster the memories begin to fall. This is the story of a father, his daughter and her son. It’s a story of the last link in a chain, the erosion of the mind and its memories. In this shed he works to hold the pieces together.
