Engrossed in her own version's of pulp romance, she strikes up an unusual friendship with George, a man in the unit next door. However, the air vent through which they communicate will also be their trap and possible exposure. Written by
This beautiful film directed by Nicholas Demetrious is a little gem. Superbly acted by Mem Ferda and Alix Longman. A roller-coaster of emotion. A lady enclosed within the confines of her room as a result of a harsh totalitarian regime looming over her world. Fully immersed in her fantasy of escape she develops a warm connection with handsome George (Mem Ferda) and his son Steven (Ben Brown), who live on the other side of that wall. They start to communicate secretly through a vent in this wall. As the physical limitations of their relationship become ever the more imposing. Elaine's (Alix Longman)own fantasy tales grow in detail. ultimately adding to this desire to destroy the wall that separates them. Mem is Memorable, powerful and a great force of emotion. Alix is driven and compassionate and Ben is a delight.
...... A sin to miss it. Excellent.
