An Unexpected Nightingale tells the story of Maria, an artist in her thirties. She is hired as a companion by a blind man, Carroll, to help him take walks in the grounds of the private hospice to which he has been confined. While initially having almost nothing in common with Carroll she not only rediscovers through their shared insights a purpose in her neglected painting, but understands how stagnant and compromised her life has become.
This programme was made with the support of the Sound & Vision funding scheme, a BAI initiative.
