When your dreams come true…

The 1960s and its fashion are Eloise’s passion. When she gets accepted at the design school in London, the girl from the countryside is thrilled. However, the college life is not what Eloise expected. Overwhelmed by the city and the other students, she moves out of the dormitory and into a quiet room at the house of a kind, elderly lady. Wouldn’t everything be better if Eloise lived in the 1960s? The music, the fashion, the iconic places in London at their former glory, the way people treat each other?

It is with those thoughts, that the girl falls asleep every night. Ever since she is living in the new room, she’s been dreaming of being Sandie, a dazzling wannabe singer in the 1960s. But soon the glamour is not all it appears to be and the dreams of the past start to crack and splinter into something far darker.

The William Faulkner quote "The past is never dead. It's not even past." rests at the heart of this trippy tale. (Film Frenzy)
