Deep Blue

She is caught between two worlds, Above and Below the water.

Riley’s at that in-between an age where you can still carry off a crop top yet a whole bottle of wine has serious consequences the next morning. The parks are full of families, the pubs are full of mates but it’s only in Tesco that Riley can be whoever she wants to be. Back home, David Attenborough floods her flat with the story of the worlds loneliness whale. She understands its low, mournful sound – it too is lost at sea.

Deep Blue is a heartfelt, sometimes humorous and raw exploration of what it means to belong, punctuated by an original indie-rock soundtrack.

There are over 7.7million people living alone in the UK, Deep Blue shines a light on the importance of human connection.

“Lights flicker and glow, it might be the lights of the city or it might be the hundreds of connections we make every day”

Written by Hayley Greggs, Directed by Nicole Behan and featuring original music by The Mono LPs.
