ABOUT THE FILM
This beautiful re-imagining of Shakespeare’s magical fairy tale is set modern day, under a full moon and during a Caribbean Festival in Barbados. Mystery and magic, comedy and chaos ensue when Puck the Butler and mischievous fairies tamper with wedding plans of returning Nationals Theseus and Hippolyta, four young lovers and group of fishermen keen to perform their potentially prize winning play.
All set within a stunning tropical paradise and with themes of mixed race relationships running through out.
