The Sorting Office Poster Dates.001.jpeg

It's Christmas and there is chaos in the Sorting Office. Auntie is having a breakdown and Alesha needs to open a parcel in secret.  They both choose the same cupboard to hide in when a power cut locks the door. In the ensuing confrontation the two women face their inner demons as a violent and catastophic event occurs outside which ultimately bonds them.

A film about ordinary people whose lives become caught up in the centre of a global catastrophe.

Starring Shaheen Kahn as Auntie and Leila McQuaid as Alesha. Written and Directed by Denise Stephenson. Because we filmed remotely on Zoom during lockdown the actors and director never met each other.
