MARA (digital, 00:21:40)
On the outskirts of London, a reserved 30 year-old carer named Annie works in a retirement home as peculiar events start to unfold in the early hours of the morning - the 77 year-old Mara leaves a mystery in the wake of her passing, told through her relics.
Annie finds herself in a Chinese diner where the mystery comes to light when a strange woman appears. Loss and estrangement entangle two lives as the woman reveals a traumatic past and shares a haunting story about parasites.
