PLOT

Screenshot 2019-05-15 at 02.02.59.png

We begin on a cold winter’s night against the background of sombre, deserted London…

As a car pulls up in a dark alleyway, a pensioner with a ghastly cough kills the engine. Sitting in the passenger seat beside him is a young girl who hasn’t slept in weeks.

He turns towards her and says that he “really needs this. Tonight.”

H

 

It doesn’t end well.

Originally conceived as a one-act stage play, The Float is an unorthodox, introspective
and ultimately patient exploration of classical tragic narrative, the cinematic “fourth wall”,
guilt, time, family, age and, of course, death.

Not designed with the impatient in mind, The Float is a slow, sombre experience that will leave all who watch it in a realm somewhere between confusion and utter existential disrepair.
