‘Love is a Sting’ tells the story of struggling children’s book writer Harold Finch. At his lowest point, Harold gains an unexpected house guest in the form of an ageing, hyper-intelligent mosquito named Anabel. Anabel has literally been the fly on the wall throughout history, but has never managed to communicate with a human being.
