Synopsis: Run & Jump follows Vanetia Casey, the spirited and impossibly optimistic centre of the Casey family, who is struggling to get life back to normal after her 38-year-old husband suffers a rare stroke that changes his personality. Entering the emotional fray is an American doctor who arrives in Ireland to stay with them for two months, his research grant providing the Caseys with essential financial aid. Vanetia is a dynamo, but with two young kids and both men in the house, she’s feeling bombarded and treats Ted and his study of Conor with resistance. Only when she observes Ted’s calming influence on the family does she begin to value his friendship, and, in return, Ted enjoys her heady, happy-go-lucky world. But Ted’s continued presence in the house sets the family on course for an emotional collision.
