THE GOOD NEIGHBOUR tells the tense and tragic story of David and Robert whose unequal friendship is based on a dark secret: they are responsible for the death of another person. Most people are never confronted with such an extreme situation. On the other hand how often are there situations, moments in life which are decided in a split second. One wrong word, one careless act and nothing is as it once was. You want to undo what has happened, forget it all and never think about it again. But how can you live when you know you are guilty for the death of another person? How strong is the temptation to carry on as though nothing has happened? And how long is it possible to suppress your own guilty thoughts?
