    • Synopsis
    • Steve is a stranger in his own world. Lost in the crowds of suits streaming to and fro across the urban jungle of London, heʼs struggling to find his way. As he clumsily navigates through a series of unsuccessful and anxiety ridden job interviews, (mostly to please his perpetually disappointed girlfriend Claire), Steve is an artist without an outlet, a creative soul with nowhere to vent. Seeing his frustration, his friends, (life-of-the-party Dave, and efficient-yet- friendly Mike) convince him to embark on a road trip to the summers last music festival, which becomes a magical mystery tour rollercoaster ride through darkness and light, laughter and terror.
      After easing himself into the brave new world of the festival bubble, the normally withdrawn and socially awkward Steve begins to come out of his shell. He reaches for the wrong beverage, accidentally downing a concentrated dose of liquid acid. This is a major turning point for our protagonist. Deep within the grip of an unexpected psychedelic trip and separated from his comrades, he does battle with demons and lovers, inside and out. Steve must navigate the fun filled surface and diving through the dark underbelly of the festival scene whilst trying to keep hold of his sanity. Itʼs a choice between fear and love. After the trials and tribulations, Steve emerges out of the other side a changed man. But in the end, itʼs just a ride.
