It’s 1901. Off the coast of a Greek fishing island a group of deep sea sponge divers stumble across a shipwreck and find a small, soggy, wooden box.
A few years ago my uncle told me a story. I became obsessed with it and couldn't work out why. I figured the best thing to do was to tell the story to other people. Expect to hear some big ideas (like memory and legacy and death) and some small ideas (like socks and plates and why my mum sits weirdly on the sofa). - Jonathan Oldfield, writer.
