John's bored in his witness protection program in Bristol. A disturbed ex-SAS soldier, he searches for meaning at the bottom of many a glass and madness sets in. Then the cryptic messages arrive.

One note comes with a knock on his door and a chance to find a missing girl; to start over again... as a private investigator.

Meanwhile, his therapist encourages him to put his demons on paper; to write it all out. As John battles with his past, could this writing lead him to find the girl, his future and maybe even love?

'Untethered' is a semi-autobiographical crime noir, exploring themes of identity, isolation and the damaging effects of drink, depression and PTSD.
