Lost Christmas

Festive urban fairy tale. A strange being with the power to find the lost finds himself in Manchester at Christmas, just as the snow begins to fall.

An urban fairy tale from the backstreets of Manchester.

On Christmas Eve, everyone is getting ready excitedly for the big day - everyone, that is, except Anthony, a strange, enigmatic being who wakes up in the street, not knowing where he is or what he's there to do. Anthony has a remarkable ability: the power to find the lost.

But is Anthony's ability real, or just an illusion? Who is he and why has he ended up in Manchester at Christmas, just as the snow begins to fall?
