Isolated, lonely characters are the driving force in this emotionally charged programme of short films

Girls who drink too much, women pushed to the limit, and dystopian worlds where loneliness is an epidemic are the backgrounds for these short films that explore loneliness in its many guises. Humane, touching and highly relatable, these stories are bound to strike a familiar core with anyone who’s ever felt lonely.
