It's make or break for Jenny and Gerry, and both need to gain their freedom from their surroundings.

Further details

The couple (yes, couple!) were supposed to meet at a Liddel family funeral, but after a breakdown they missed each other by minutes. Doubt has set in, and with only letters to reach each other, it's a tough time for the unlikely pair. Both are battling with depression, and have very different ways of coping with it. The solution to their problems may just come from Gerry's cellmate Clarkie's "adventurous" correspondence of his own. It's make or break for Jenny and Gerry, and both need to gain their freedom from their surroundings.
