Elephant Features & Dimarco Films in association with The Magic Circle present a bittersweet British comedy set in the world of stage magic, where reality is just an illusion...
When he breaks his leg Tony (Andrew Lee-Potts), a young shy virginal 22yr, is dragged to a weekend convention in Blackpool by his estranged magic-loving Grandfather, making his last annual pilgrimage.
There he meets and falls for Debra, a glamorous yet deeply unhappy Magician’s Assistant who is nightly impaled by a Horror Illusionist, whilst locked in a bitter divorce with a sad-faced Clown.
But when Tony, having learnt about magic from his Grandfather to win Debra’s heart, discovers that she wants to escape this fake world of illusion he is thrust between the two rivals forcing him to overcome his shyness and stand up for the woman he has fallen for.
“The characters are great fun, the dialogue is sometimes laugh-out-loud funny, and the story has a really old-fashioned feel-good heart of gold quality about it. It’s very distinctively British and indeed northern in flavour.” Richard Johns, Warp X
