Geoff has Gephyrophobia - a fear of crossing bridges. Trapped in a home surrounded by bridges and yet compelled to stay to care for his ailing Mother, Geoff has constructed an ingenious (and at times ridiculous) set of procedures to enable his daily life and avoid his phobia at all costs. But when the woman he loves decides to force a change in his behaviour, his life begins to fall apart as the source of his demons are revealed. Geoff must confront his fear, or loose everything.
