Her mother left when she was just a child. Whenever she cried, her Papa would say, ‘Let’s go to the movies.’ So began her love of the cinema, a place for her imagination to be set free, a place where she longed, one day, to meet her Mama.
One day, not long after turning fourteen, she meets a young boy who also likes going to the movies. They spend the whole walk home talking about the film. When he moves overseas with his family he promises that one day they will meet again, in the darkness of the movie theatre.
Now grown up, she finds the only way to relax after a stressful day of work is to sneak off to watch a film. There she meets him again and together they are taken on a new journey into their imaginations, a world of their own making. But is life like it is in the movies? Will they have their happy ending?
