Synopsis

'Folie a Deux - Madness Made of Two' is a quintessentially English tale with a universal message. The story is prophetic, refreshingly humorous, and driven by Helen, a ‘love her, hate her, but you can’t ignore her’ character. Helen, a single mother of seven whom along with her new lover, risks bankruptcy and homelessness to fulfill a dream.

Shot over five years and set in the oldest house in England. This film is an intimate portrayal of a large, bohemian family with all the ups and downs of daily life, an intriguing insight into England's history, and current obsessions. It’s a nail-biting journey through the economic crash and life's biggest gamble.

However, unlike ‘The Queen of Versailles’, this is not a story of the conspicuous consumerism of billionaires; rather this is ‘our’ story, this is the human cost of the banking crisis.
