One of the most popular alternative metal bands around, Incubus were formed in California in 1991. Their debut album, Fungus Amongus mixed the funk-rock sound of bands like the Red Hot Chili Peppers with the then new sound of what came to be termed nu-metal. Their second album (and major label debut) S.C.I.E.N.C.E. continued in this vein, mixing hip hop beats and basslines, with heavy guitars and rock vocals. Their fanbase was widened as a result of their extensive touring in support of artists such as Korn and Primus, coupled with their appearance on the “Ozzfest” tour, and their follow-up album Make Yourself was a strong seller as a result. The single Drive from this album was the band’s first top ten hit and signalled that they were moving in to mainstream consciousness.

Derry,1980. Emma and Clare are thick as thieves – skipping, chasing, playing in the park. But the terrible events of that summer would tear their lives apart, binding them together forever. As adults they obsessively replay past events and incidents.  Could anything have been done to change them? For Emma and Clare it was the summer they met at the swings, the summer they built a tree house and the summer a young mother and her infant daughter moved into number fourteen. Now in their thirties, Emma and Clare struggle to come to terms with the chain of devastating events that began that summer. Hila
