Some might call him a troubled soul; a man at odds with the world; a law unto himself unable to conform to society. If you saw him in the pub; disheveled and drunk; talking to himself, you’d stay well away, think he was disturbed somehow; crazy... But Jack has a sharp mind, a razor wit. It’s not that he doesn’t want to live a normal life... But that’s just it, he can’t... They won’t let him.

Since he found his father hanging in the shed when he was a kid, since he blamed himself for not getting there in time to save him. In that moment they found a way into his head and they’re not giving up. Constantly turning up, begging him to pass on one last message to their loved ones left behind… Every time they swear to leave him alone if he does as they ask…

But when one ‘ghost’ leaves another turns up; and another; and another…

The Messenger is the story of Jack’s last melt down. A story of frustration and guilt; of love and betrayal; family and blame. How he chooses the victims he’ll help next, how he, stalker-like, becomes embroiled in their lives. In this case, Mark, a journalist brutally murdered in the local park and his television presenter wife, Sarah, to whom he’s desperate to say one last goodbye.
