  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

Claire lives in two different worlds: dreamlike and harsh reality. Her new neighbour Rex tells her that they are all living in ‘heaven’. He sees that she is carrying a psychic magazine and tells her that he is a psychic too. She is a bit wary of him and ignores him when she can.

Narcissistic and shallow, Anna makes for a strange friend to Claire, but she supports her in her depression – only because of a recent events that has affected Claire’s life. They meet up with Rex in the park and he persists with the idea that they are all living in ‘heaven’, and that his wife is coming. While Claire can only see death; does she see Rex’s perception of his life being in heaven, or is he really quite mad and believes he is dead? While this sounds ridiculous to her, Claire is somehow drawn in by this man’s belief that they are all living in a better place – they just don’t know it yet.

This is Heaven explores people’s perception about the world around them; whether their life is true to others or not, it is true to them.
