Synopsis


It's Christmas Eve in the winter of 2008, and the night is cruel and beautiful …


The USA is buzzing with the election of a new President.


Joey, a disillusioned English graduate, arrives in New York to visit her estranged father.


But after a whirlwind midnight run through the city, she finds herself falling for an idealistic young American.


As she fights to be remembered by her father's failing mind, Joey must decide if she can let go of her fears and believe again in the American Dream.


English cynicism is held up to the light of hope, at a defining moment 'when change had come to America' in a darkly funny story of modern identity.


All those stars and buildings - all that dreaming - it suddenly feels like the most stupid idea you ever had.
