Directed by Bruno Centofanti | Produced by Louise Salter

If you were forced to flee your own war-ridden country, would you sacrifice what makes you human to survive?

Set in the near future of a dystopian London, with a scarily relevant and frighteningly foreboding reality, the film explores the dire consequences of a world without humanity, as the sisters try to escape their war-torn country.

BAFTA winner Sophie Kennedy Clarke (Philomena, Nymphomaniac), Tony Award winner Frances Ruffelle (Les Misérables) and newcomer Louise Salter drive us though this empowering female-led futuristic short film.
