Details

“Afloat, Adrift” is a short dramatic comedy that centers around Mei; a Chinese immigrant housewife stuck in her own version of no man’s land in an isolated house in Southern England.

She finds herself in a country, a language and a culture that is not her own, and a family to whom she no longer feels a connection. While her husband and son are bonded through their obsession of swimming, Mei’s intrinsic fear of water leaves her to act out a purely domestic role in the household. Finally exasperated from her life of boredom, Mei decides to she must confront her phobia or in this case, the bucket of water. She picks up a VCR tape and puts on a wetsuit.

She’s ready to swim, at home, on the ground, in front of her beloved TV. In the process of doing so, Mei begins a journey of self discovery and expression in a world that she has struggled to call home.
