tikkun olam: in everything you do, you must seek the opportunity to repair the world

Steve Alexander is preparing to stand as a Labour MP for the Westminster constituency. As part of his campaign he is backing the building of a Holocaust memorial near parliament square, to help the campaign gain traction Steve and his campaign manager Dan invite social influencer Leah on board as a one-woman focus group. As Dan, Steve, and Leah try and persuade the divided community to back the memorial their own motivations are challenged as the political and personal ties between them are tested to the very limit

A powerful, funny, intelligent political drama, that looks at the stark contrast in views and voices in and around our capital, the ever-growing divisions between the generations, and the challenging task of mending and learning to ensure we do and are better.

‘I stand here and try and make sense of all the voices and I can’t hear my own anymore’
