Breathe is a dark emotional character driven drama set over the course of one day and night in London. The central character is Isobel, a reclusive young woman who is deeply affected when she witnesses a male cyclist hit by a van. Despite her attempts to save his life, the cyclist dies in her arms.
Hours later in the dark hours of the morning she finds herself back at the scene of the accident, unable to sleep as traumatic images flood her mind. There she meets Nick, the dead cyclists brother, and the two spend the evening together in an attempt to soothe the guilt and grief each feels.
