LEAVES OF LONDON

                                               

Leaves of London is a character led drama set on Hampstead Heath, following different lives on one sunny afernoon.

 

As we drift through this beautiful, natural landscape during one afternoon, we meet a strange mix of characters, each with their own stories to tell: lost girls on the path to recovery, an eccentric elder lady reliving her youth, a fisherman attempting to educate his son, boy scouts becoming pirates, a wise poet, a couple’s romance turning sour in a completely hollow tree....Nothing is quite what it seems as each scene reverses your expectations…

Underlying all these separate glimpses into different people’s lives is a sense of a collective consciousness. Amongst the trees of Hampstead heath there is a sense of the magic that connects everyone together.

The story is set through 7 scenes; it’s almost like a collection of short stories with each scene being a short drama following a different life of another character.
