Luke falls. He has epilepsy. And, as it turns out, he has much bigger issues too. Esther falls. In love. It’s wonderful – but there’s a shadow that she can’t identify and she can’t make go away just by loving Luke. Luke’s experience has taught him to despise himself; Esther’s self-belief is fragile. And love is not as easy as it looks. Will they be still falling at the end of term? A story about the struggle it can be to love someone who doesn’t love themselves – and why it’s worth it.
