Plot – Spoilers:
What happens when you’re too sensitive and the things that upset you are usually other people’s problems which you deal with by hurting yourself instead. Lee is just out of hospital having done time for a cutting moment that got out of control. Back home, the atmosphere isn’t ideal – sister is excited to be married, mother is nervous and oppressively protective of her and father is mostly drunk. Lee tries to seek familiar comfort in selfharm, but it just won’t do. But then she finds employment as a secretary to a lawyer, who might have the right-sized hand for her empty glove.
