This five-part story which was comissioned specially for BBC 7, details the strange, quantum fantasy sci-fi world of Oneira. It all begins with the purchase of a baby refrigerator that cries until it is fed, growing to a ridiculous size until it eats her boyfriend, and an alchemist from a painting hanging in the museum where she works and the search for a special book she becomes involved with. And that's only the beginning... Is it a comedy? Is it fantasy? Is it sci-fi? Is is confusing? Listen and hear for yourself.
