It's 1972 and Wendy Wood is on the fifth day of her hunger strike.

As the hunger pains and hallucinations kick in, her world collides with that of insecure Freya in 2021, who is starving for something to believe in.

The two drink, dance and debate the question of how to find your freedom…fight or flight?

Starving is a fiercely funny drama about writing your own legend, inspired by the life of Scottish activist Wendy Wood.
