Lynne is a young woman who once dreamed of being an artist, but whose promotion to supervisor at a call-centre in Glasgow is sucking the soul out of her.
When Lynne hands a fiver to a homeless man on the street in town one day, she is shocked to recognise Angus - her former art teacher on whom she once had a crush.
What on earth could have reduced him to life on the street?
In a gesture of uncharacteristic rashness, she invites him home.
So begins The Glasgow Coma Scale. Set against the gentrification of Scotland's second city, this is a taut, ticklish, tender and truly unexpected story of art, of the city, of feelings, and about the redemptive power of an unconventional kind of love.
