Lent Course | Session 4
Broken | Roz
Roz’s deception is revealed this week, when a cheque she forgot to date gets sent back. She admits the fraud but asks her boss to wait before reporting it so she can have one last night with her children. It is clear that Roz has decided about taking her life and she tells Fr Michael how she intends to do it. He persuades her to come and talk to a committee about her addiction to gambling machines in the hope that she would persuade them to oppose another betting shop but, more importantly, to understand that she wasn’t entirely to blame. But she remains resolute. In the end, after much soul searching, Fr Michael tries to stop her killing herself by telling her daughter to go home at the time he thought she would be trying to do it. But Roz anticipates this and ends her life another way.
You are warmly invited to join us for our 6 week Lent course. The course is written by Canon Dr. Paula Gooder and is based on the BBC series ‘Broken’. Full details are available here.
