Young professionals Gemma and Tom are looking to buy a home together. When their local estate agent informs them of a new housing development, the enigmatically named Yonder, they ignore their initial reservations and decide to check it out. But this cautious couple should have listened to their instincts, quickly finding themselves unable to escape the seemingly endless maze of picture-perfect streets. As the weeks pass, they are forced to accept they are trapped inside this manufactured utopia. Then, one day, a baby boy is mysteriously delivered to their doorstep.
Invoking both the mind-bending weirdness of a classic Twilight Zone episode and the playful contemporary satire of Black Mirror, Lorcan Finnegan’s nightmarish jaunt up the property ladder is as thrillingly provocative as it is wickedly enjoyable. Sold!
