Wishbone Films: creating inspirational films that provoke social awakening and altered perspectives
FAYPhil
Wishbone Films was founded on the belief that fundamental human truths lie at the centre of humanity. We innately understand these truths in a visceral way and film is a medium that translates these truths.  With the current climate of today’s world, we wish to bring forgotten knowledge, compassion and understanding to the forefront of people’s minds: so they remember what they instinctively already know.  For our audiences, we want to open their eyes and minds to a new way of thinking, so they leave the theatre (or the screen of their choice) with a slightly altered perspective.

At ten years old, Oliver and Kelly are best of friends.  Ashamed that he can’t help Kelly stand up to her cruel father, Oliver promises that he will at least always be with her.  Years later, that promise has taken on a momentum of its own and Oliver, now in his last semester of college, finds himself engaged to Kelly out of a sense of duty.  He’s trapped. As his last semester begins, he meets Dawn, a free spirit, and they fall madly in love.  On the day of graduation he has to make a decision – keep his promise to Kelly or follow his heart with Dawn. Seven years later, Ollie is living an idyllic life with Dawn until he starts having dark dreams of another life – a life in which he chose to stay with Kelly and let Dawn go – a life in which he is still named ‘Oliver’. In Ollie’s waking life, strange things start happening – a note on his doorstep, seashells buried in his garden, a shadow outside his window. Ollie’s mind begins to unravel as his dreams of Oliver and Kelly get more violent and the events around him grow more threatening.  Oliver seems to be possessing Ollie and threatening to take the life he should have had.
