Guardian Charles, a 40-year-old boutique teddy bear maker and wearer of ironic t-shirts, is trying – and failing – to sell his small, characterless house in Llandudno. Avigail, yes Avigail, his estate agent, is trying – mostly in vain – to rein in Charles’s most unhelpful eccentricities, including his repeated recounting to potential buyers of an unsuccessful burglary that took place 12 years ago. When Wang Shu and her daughter view the house, a series of seemingly innocuous events distorts the reality of the characters’ lives, causing Avigail to revaluate her beliefs – and all of the characters to question their very existence.
