On a solitary cliff in the country side of southern England stands the foggy grounds that hold St Tarbula's Home for Unusual Girls.
Once an old manor, the house was abandoned during the First World War before falling into the hands of our holy mother church and, eventually, becoming home, hospital, prison, safe haven or all of the above to its current inhabitants.
Screams in the night are commonplace at St Tarbula's as are feuds, tantrums and tears. All residents are housed for the ‘Three R's’ - reformation, reprogramming and recovery. Some are at St. Tarbula’s for psychological disorders whilst others appear to have just been in the wrong place at the wrong time, distinguishing between the two however is easier said than done. Sometimes a smile is simply that but occasionally it can hide a more sinister machination.
St Tarbula's withholds a strict regime of non contact with the 'distractions' of the outside world, though the girls have their ways and means of bending this rule on occasion, in fact, it has become something of a game to see how often they can sneak out without catching the attention of the Sisters and Chaperones of the house.
