Synopsis

'When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life'





Set in London during Bonfire Night weekend, Wonderland follows three generations of one family as their separate paths cross each other.





Mum and Dad are marooned in a loveless marriage, both scarred by the absence of their son Darren. Debbie, Nadia and Molly are their three daughters. Molly is due to have her first baby any day. Debbie has a nine year only boy, Jack, but still wants to spend her nights on the town. Nadia lives alone and is looking for someone to fall in love with.





Set on location with a small crew, using a hand held camera, no lights, no slates, no boom and no extras, the film tries to capture the everyday experience of life in a big city. The characters in the film are the people you see every day on the train, on the bus, at work. Their problems are mundane and eternal: how to find some contentment in this world.
