Summary

Synopsis

Loosely based on the short story ʻIl Paradisoʼ by iconic 60ʼs writer Alberto Moravia, OLGA? follows Cecilia, a very troubled 23 year old, whose child has just been taken away after an accident. Her suicide attempt is interrupted by a friend’s phone call, Olga, inviting her to a party. Cecilia accepts the invite….but the drugs have already started working. But who is Olga?

ʻOlga?ʼ attracted some of the UKʼs best talent including rising star Amelia Warner for the lead (Quills, Aeon Flux, The Seeker: Dark Is Rising and The Echo) and supported by British legend Rula Lenska who has appeared on television, stage and screen for over thirty years. OLGA? was produced in association with 2AM TV, a branch of London production company 2am Films. (www.2amfilms.co.uk)
