Synopsis

Top | Production | Details

Set during a freak heatwave, All About Town tells the stories of twelve groups of people living parallel lives in an English commuter town. The twelve chapters take a funny, whimsical and, at times, moving look at the characters, each of whom comes from a very different background and outlook on life and the world. As we move between tales we start to see we are all struggling with the same questions, are subject to the same fears and hold the same hopes and dreams for the future.

As the film progresses we are introduced to a couple on the brink of separation who decide a "peaceful" row on the lake may be what their relationship needs, followed by an office worker who is sent to stall the head of his company while the board of directors concoct a plan to get rid of him. Meanwhile, a researcher finds a mysterious photo of a woman standing the bombed out remains of a house, a struggling actor needs help learning his lines, and a schoolboy enlists his elder brother to help him impress a girl he has a crush on.

Two florists receive a series of increasingly bizarre phone calls, and we follow one bunch of flowers as it is taken by a woman looking for the grave of her great-uncle. At the same time, a grumpy old man is frustrated by everyone and everything he sees around him, and a young man who breaks into his old primary school on the eve of its demolition to make way for a sparkling new academy has an encounter with a figure from his past.

In a café, a divorced husband and wife have one final verbal sparring match before burying the hatchet, a small girl distracts herself at a restaurant table, and a teenage girl is dragged to a gig by her best friend.
