Franklyn (2008)

Set between contemporary London and the dystopic Meanwhile City, where the separation between church and state has been obliterated to make way for a religion-dominated society. Atheist vigilante Jonathan Preest prepares to seek revenge against Meanwhile City's powerful leader, privileged artist Emilia finds her cynicism and depression accelerated by the difficult relationship she shares with her mother. Meanwhile, sensitive Milo attempts to recover from a recent heartache, just as deeply religious Peter arrives in London to search for his missing son, a haunted Gulf War veteran. As the narrative shifts between the real and imaginary worlds, McMorrow explores the complex relationships between fantasy, faith, and love.
