By Erin McGee

Mon, 11 April, 2022 — Sat, 16 April, 2022

Directed by Louise Ludgate

Riley has recently found herself dumped, down on her luck, and in need of a break. This leads her to join a new cult who worship the Man on the Moon. When a reporter infiltrates the cult, Riley has to decide whether or not this place, which she knows is a fantasy, is worth continuing to believe in.
