The child of an ambassador plays alone in a London embassy with only the occasional attention of a kindly butler for company. This intimate, visually expressive and suspense-filled drama – penned by Graham Greene from one of his own short stories – follows the child’s perspective in his deepening struggle to make sense of the complex world around him.
