UNMADE BEDS

UNMADE BEDS

Unmade Beds interweaves the stories of two young foreigners as they seek to rediscover their roots and romance in the vivacious world of London’s East End. Axl, a twenty-year-old Spaniard, arrives in London on a quest to find the father who abandoned him when he was a child. Taking up residence in a vibrant squat in a hip London neighbourhood, he finds himself alongside other colourful characters from all over the world, drawn to London’s melting pot. Among them is Vera, a beautiful Belgian girl recently abandoned by her boyfriend, whose faith in romance is gradually rekindled when she meets a charismatic stranger.
