Sleeping Trees presents
Sleeping Trees: Work in Progress
directed by Tom Parry
Sleeping Trees have been travelling around the world! They've been scuba-diving at the Great Barrier Reef, trekking the ancient Inca trails of Peru and gone dogging in Blackpool. But what starts as an innocent journey of discovery soon leads to an intricate series of events, culminating in the secret mission to end all missions. A story of love, revenge and friendship, and by friendship, we mean revenge. Directed by Tom Parry (Pappys, BBC3).
