Synopsis:‘Ebony Road’ is a drama and unique thriller full of twists set in a contemporary society and city. Two young sisters, Emmie and Isobel Spurrier, struggle to live homeless on the streets of London. The gritty film develops when Emmie accidentally gets involved in prostitution after her younger sister befriends a mysterious man named Keith. Emmie soon realises that her and Isobel’s safety is in jeopardy. When the characters fall in grave danger, the pressure is on Emmie to change her critical view of life to bring everyone back together. On her journey Emmie changes dramatically and she learns to appreciate what little she has, as well as befriending and finding trust in Keith. Keith’s character is central to the story as he resonates Emmie’s feelings towards her sister to those he has towards his own, and develops as a character greatly throughout the film. Jay Frost, played by Oliver Fabian is majorly the most complex character of the film, and has interweaving connections with all three other leads.
Sound Track: The film features original songs from Australian New York City-based singer/ songwriter Nadia Ackerman from Three Four Music Productions together with music producer Harvey Jones. Having recently performed on SNL alongside Ellie Goulding, the production team were thrilled to have her support and enthusiasm on board the project. The magical soundtrack will be available to buy on iTunes and in stores shortly.
