Journeying through a beguiling labyrinth of stores and cinemas, inspired by a mysterious Key Lord, two wide-eyed girls become friends while navigating a pandemic lockdown to dream of a brighter future.

They escape on a supernatural journey discovering who they might be in a promising new time.


The film project will take the characters and audience through a rollercoaster ride of a time of excess (Pre-Covid), a time of severe lockdowns (Covid), and a hope of a new way (Post-Covid) of living and connecting.

The project will be filmed in the Central Coast in NSW with mainly local actors and award winning film creatives. It will bring the community together, promoting the culture and business of the area to also build interest in the scenic and human possibilities of a thriving artistic film community.

The film is being cast and working with people of diverse backgrounds in front and behind the camera. The film in its entirety will best represent the true contemporary Australia.

An uplifting story to usher in better times. A ray of hope.
