Rainy Days & Mondays

1970s. On rainy days and Mondays no one wants to go to school, but little Rebecca doesn't ever want to go back. The 'experts' call it school phobia caused by the transition to secondary education.

School? They really don't have a clue what she's up against. After losing her beloved grandfather and witnessing the near drowning of her dad, Rebecca is convinced the Grim Reaper is stalking the Fronts.

Determined to outsmart Death and protect her mum, she refuses to leave her side, putting her parents in a sticky situation. Thankfully, kind-hearted head teacher Miss Dyson has a plan.


Produced by Tiger Aspect Productions.
