Mockingbird

Author: Alison Knight,

Synopsis

Tom is a scavenger and lives in a dilapidated house in an otherwise prosperous suburb. Ella, a newcomer to the area, is sympathetic to Tom’s plight, but this grates with Jake’s new boss and his snobbish wife, Genevieve. “Mockingbird” looks at how society treats misfits. Ignore them and hope they go away, actively take steps to get rid of them, or try to show compassion. But you could find yourself embroiled in something you can’t handle.
