BOUND

Writers: Xenia Glen & Daniel Bayle
Producer: Xenia Glen
Director: Daniel Bayle
Length: 10 minutes
Genre: Drama

Set in the modern day London, a 13 year old Filipino girl named Alyanna abandons her agonising scoliosis brace and runs away from her authoritarian mother and confined council estate for an afternoon of freedom, where she can pretend to be one of the "normal" kids. However when Alyanna runs into a group of British boys at the local skatepark her journey takes an unforeseen and dangerous turn.

BOUND is inspired by producer Xenia Glen's personal experiences growing up with scoliosis in a Filipino family; it also explores the ghettoisation and segregation, both systemic and self imposed, inflicted on first and second generation immigrants in multicultural London.
