A terrified 12 year old boy finds himself separated from his family in the unfamiliar streets of a war torn city. He takes refuge in a bombed out house and in the total blackness his bravado crumbles into tears.

Into his life steps Anna -'older, street smart and scornful of his crying. As a way of shutting the boy up, she starts to tell him a story that she vaguely remembers from her own childhood. And so begins a journey into the shifting, shimmering world of ogres, princes, singing bones, foolish lads and wolf mothers.

Stories in the Dark explores the power of storytelling, mingling the magic and earthy wisdom of folk tales with the hard edged story of violence, conflict and the struggle to survive.
