Synopsis

Human life is made of hope. The hope of a better tomorrow. A better home. A better world. As the sun shines on a new day, there is always the possibility of everything being greater than it once was. In this selection of films, a series of characters look forward to the future whilst trying to deal with the present. As they explore their hopes and fears we’ll see some people for whom the future offers opportunity and redemption. Others will find the future a dark and unknowable place. But the promise of hope unites them all.
