A tense relationship drama which examines how the effects of one moment can ripple through a galaxy of lives.
An ordinary summer's day. Liam is about to make a decision he will spend a lifetime regretting. One day. One mistake. Seven futures sent spiralling.
From service stations to sea fronts, Blister explores the limits of forgiveness and the tragic permanence of trauma.
