Mary Henry (Grace Chilton) is a city urchin, struggling to make ends meet working for a crime ring run by sinister pragmatist Mademoiselle (Susan Lynch). Home life is no easier, trapped in a one-bed and a battle of wits with her ambitious boyfriend, Mr X. Soon, Mary finds she must piece together a way out of London before she runs out of luck. A metaphor of power and survival in the flourishing neo-liberal kingdom of modern day London.
Penny Andrea (1990) is a British artist and filmmaker. She studied Fine Art at Oxford University and De Ateliers, Amsterdam. She has assisted artist filmmakers Daria Martin, Runa Islam and John Walter, and her own video installations were shown in group exhibitions throughout Europe.
