    Edinburgh, 2006. Romania, Susanne and Adrianne are students, living together but leading very distinct lives. Adrian is a junior lecturer whose nihilistic worldview cuts gradually deeper into his increasingly lonely life.

    Washed-up Sacramento band The Stranger Than Fictions are in town, and when they offer Romania a gig all manner of uncertainties and anxieties start to crystallise.

    From these characters and their disorientating web of friends, acquaintances, haunts and habits emerges a multilateral examination of depression, performative insincerity and exploitation of sexual naivety. There is no grand design or all-governing plot, but the coming-of-age struggle that all the characters face one way or another is presented in all its bitterness and uncertainty.
