Global world, alternative reality, year 2017. Emma and Leo love each other but in a strictly regimented world where women represent 80% of the population, struggle for being a couple and keeping faith in love is tough. A dark sci-fi thriller, a sensual and powerful satire/role reversal on some aspects of our societies cultures.
Directed by Xavier Guignard, produced by Essay Pictures.
The score, which is a constant presence in the film, develops an imagined futuristic "synthwave" genre, and elsewhere uses a choir singing in microtonal polyphony to highlight the unsettling, disturbing nature of the lead character.
The Little Thief trailer is available to watch on the showreel, and more details about the film (including showing times and purchase options) is available at Essay Pictures.
