HARRISON, a nice guy with a history of schizophrenia battles the diverse and unpredictable voices he hears, a judgmental society and the hazards of social media as he attempts to make a new friend. In order to better manage the voices, he personifies them within his childhood toys: SMILING HERBERT contains the voice of rage; MOLLY, the voice of paranoia; BEAN represents irrepressible sexual thoughts; CONRAD speaks the bare facts; MARROW provides a constant, indecipherable mumble and MOUSEY is the sound of panic. When Harrison happens upon the philanthropic online posts of the beautiful social media addict AMBER and she blindly accepts his "chum request", Harrison sees this as the beginning of a beautiful friendship. But, is it?

Did You Know?
The film was shot in the tiny rented flat of the director, Tim Prescott, and producer, Miriam Rodriguez. As well as being transformed into the sparsely decorated flat of the protagonist, Harrison, it also served as the 13-day green room, dining area, hair & Make-up area, storage depot, DIT area, catering area, pre-production, production and post-production office (and sleeping area) for a cast and crew of over 11 people.
There were no fights. It helped to have a good sense of humour on-set. See more
