The present appears to be a sci-fi dystopia. Against visions of British cities and faces illuminated by smartphones, anonymous voicemails from young people are left for the Minister of Loneliness.Through disarmingly honest testimonies left on an answer phone machine, this abstract short documentary shot on 16mm film explores the silent loneliness epidemic in the UK and discovers a world in which we are 'connected', but more isolated than ever.
