Without Trace 1999-2000

Without Trace tells the story of a disappearance. Seen through the split focus of she who disappears, and those she has left behind, the show explores the sense of freedom of stepping off the world you know, and that knows you; and the prison in which loved ones find themselves as they struggle to make sense of the sudden gap in their worlds.

pulverising, overwhelming, …left a very big trace indeed in my mind.” Daily Telegraph, 1999
