Martha - Meet Frank, Daniel and Laurence

  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

London. 'I want to talk about love. I want to talk about friendship and deceit. I want to talk about the fact that up until three days ago, there were four people whose lives were OK. Not perfect but OK. But that was three days ago, and in three days it's all fallen apart....'





Frank, Daniel and Laurence have been friends since they can remember. Frank, an out of work actor, overindulges himself and is in constant competition with the rich, charming and successful Daniel. Laurence is their fall guy, the man with a sympathetic ear and capacity to bring them together. But this time Daniel has gone too far. He has stolen Frank's date and once again failed to turn up to a meeting of the three men. Frank is furious and ready to maim. Laurence tries but fails to placate. Frank is right, Daniel is far away - in Minneapolis, heading for the airport.





Martha is taking a trip. Paris $300? LA. $180? Mexico City $350? Seattle $130? Or London? A decision to change her life which changes the lives of others.
