James never misses his dreams - he records them straight to VHS using Dreamspoon wireless technology. But when a work colleague, Erica, stops by one evening, she finds something surprising amongst the titles. Curiosity gets the better of her and the evening takes an unexpected turn.

Starring Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Undercovers, Larry Crowne, Doctor Who, Fallout) and O-T Fagbenle (Walter's War, Consuming Passions, Breaking And Entering, Doctor Who).

Shot on HD in July 2008 and completed in October 2008, this film was made possible with great help and support from BBC Bristol Post Production, Films at 59, Wounded Buffalo, White Rabbit Media, Farm Studio and Company Productions.
