Three Days

Synopsis

London 8am. A letter arrives. Finder's lover is leaving on an early train for Paris. He rushes to the Eurostar terminus but his hopes of catching her are extinguished by missed connections and a tube delay.


'However much you think you're prepared for something, you never are'.


From a Eurostar telephone Finder calls his work-partner, Blind Date Man, only to find a journal belonging to a Canadian actress just arrived in London, Tina 'The Tourist'. The journal contains Tina's money, passport, and a Polaroid of her host and mentor, Wheelchair Woman.


'One moment you're one person, the next you can be someone completely different'.


As Finder is led on a three-day journey of chance and coincidence we meet a host of other eccentric characters whose paths entwine. The compassionate Buddhist Fashion Victim, beautiful Question Mark Woman, her naive admirer Kebab Boy, and the enigmatic Caretaker.


But Finder has still to locate Tina. He takes another look at the Polaroid. It looks like any other tourist snapshot, but with one difference - he recognises himself in the background . . .


. . . of a picture that hasn't been taken. Yet.


'Maybe if we were confused all the time, things would be a lot clearer'.
