About Run Away

This is a 10-15 minute short film. It focuses on the coming of age theme and the subtle, delicate emotions disguised in aloofness because of obsession of work and the lack of communication in the family. The protagonist Lola, is a 16-year-old girl who runs away from home on her birthday night, and comes across a woman with similar experience on the street. They choose to accompany each other through the night. When they get to know each other more, they both begin to reconcile with themselves as well as with their family members.

Who are we?

We are a bunch of film enthusiasts studying a post graduate programme on Filmmaking at Kingston University. This is our dissertation project and we are determined to make it great!
