‘I’ve known Alice her entire life,’ says Catt. ‘Our parents grew up together and our families were close, so we became close too. Together as children, we watched as two unrelated cancers slowly took away her eldest sister and then her mother. I saw her descend into silence and then years later explode in expression. Life has brought distance between us, yet I see myself in Alice: a representation of thousands of other young people jostling through the modern day, carrying the past on their backs.’
