A surreal, theatrical adventure in which a young person escapes into a seemingly empty building at night, and meets a mysterious guide who offers them an alternative way out.  Filmed in Battersea Arts Centre, in one continuous, unbroken shot, this is an immersive journey through a labyrinth of rooms and corridors, propelled by performances from extraordinary artists.

Omid Djalili leads the journey as the enigmatic Guide. The Young Person is played by Bláithín Mac Gabhann, with performances by some of the most exciting, diverse artists working in the UK today: Lucy McCormick, Caleb Femi, Botis Seva, Le Gateau Chocolat, The Cocoa Butter Club, Sanah Ahsan, and Too Hot For Candy.
 

'A whirl through wonderland. This bewitching single-take film captures the magic of live performance with one showstopper after another'
★★★★ The Guardian
