Sliding Doors

  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

What if one split second sent your life in two completely different directions?





Sliding Doors is a contemporary love story that follows one woman's life beyond that deciding moment - down two different paths.





Helen's destiny is about to be determined by the sliding doors of a London underground train. If she makes it aboard, her life takes on a new direction. If she's left standing on the platform, she has a whole different future to face.





In parallel stories, the movie follows Helen's life down both paths; in a tale that is by turns mysterious, romantic, dangerous, comedic - and utterly unpredictable.





We all have but one life to live. Helen gets two - at the same time.
