    • Synopsis
    • On his way to a convention, American social entrepreneur, James, runs into his old Cambridge philosophy professor, Michael, who is traveling with the academic, Martine. Their train gets accidentally decoupled, leaving them stranded on the outskirts of the quirky English town of Milton Keynes. Accompanied by three other passengers, the young and cocky Emily, Olivia and Jason, the group journeys through this very surreal place. Moral dilemmas, high heels, free will and chicken are a few of the subjects explored. For some of them, this triggers a revelation about their lives: past, present and future. The Optimist takes you on a playful journey looking at modern society through humour, philosophy and colour.
