In Development
Hope Dickson Leach wins 2017 Scottish BAFTA


When his daughter goes missing in what seems like an alien abduction, a father is forced to search for her in a strange world of alienated teenagers. There he discovers he must face himself and his past before he can uncover the truth.




When his daughter goes missing in an apparent alien abduction, Gabriel's search takes him dangerously close to her strange group of so-called friends. But the further he goes inside their computer game and fantasy-obsessed world, the more he realises that he must confront his own difficult memories if he is to get his daughter back.
