Shooting 28/3/16- 3/3/16

SYNOPSIS

The distant future. Communicative technology has become illegal due to public and governmental mistrust.

Our story surrounds Lola, early-twenties, and an entry-level receptionist at a sleekly modern Graphic Design House. She spends her days in front of a hulking switchboard, connecting call after monotonous call. She is ambitious, yet unsatisfied. A lonely London dweller stuck in a state of impermanence. She appears to loose sight of the long-term over the course of the narrative, knowing what she is doing will benefit her, but is still discontent.

Through the act of connecting his calls she begins a purely platonic friendship with an older man who helps her with this deep feeling she has of indifference, of not belonging. The story culminates when Lola finally accepts her co-worker’s invitation for after work drinks – she spots someone who she believes could be the man she’s talking to on the phone, deciding to follow him.

Lola (lead role)

Lola was lucky, walking straight out of university and into the receptionist job at the publication company she always dreamed of working for. Or at least that’s how it felt for the first few months. Now bored and apathetic she’s stuck in an in-between phase in her life – living at home with her family, commuting into London and generally feeling like she’s only experiencing a life half lived.

The story of our film follows Lola as she talks to a mysterious stranger every single day. Purely
