‘We’d go mad, if we actually moved out somewhere like this’

A group of city-dwelling friends unite at a remote country house for a weekend away. The perfect opportunity to reconnect with nature.
When they find an old map of the grounds, a nocturnal hunt for buried treasure begins. What they unearth will alter them forever.
The Alter has been developed as part The Lowry’s Live Now digital commissioning programme.
