14 episodes

A unique audio drama series created by writer/director Neil Cargill and musician/sound designer Simon James featuring an original electronic music score and full cast including Ian McDiarmid, famed for his role as Emperor Palpatine in the Star Wars saga, as Cuttings – the radio ham who picks up a mysterious voice. The voice belongs to a girl (Joy McAvoy, from Ken Loach's The Angels' Share and Filth) trapped in an abandoned amusement park called Akiha Den Den.

Singer Wendy Rae Fowler (featured vocalist with bands such as Queens Of The Stone Age) lends her distinctive Alabama tones to the multi-layered soundscape as it becomes clear there's a whole community there, whose words and music become woven into a mesmerising plea for help.

Everything becomes highly charged when one of the trapped inhabitants finds a way into our world – where his impact on us could be as devastating and far-reaching as an unknown, unseen virus.
