Every large city has one of those famous districts of concrete-panelled blocks of flats.
Where the flats used to symbolise the start of a new and better life.
Today it’s all in the past continuous.
A man and a woman meet in one of those tiny flats.
We all think that we know what’s going to happen next.
But what do we actually know about the people around us?
