DIRECTOR(S): Amber Sealey
STARRING: Gemma Brockis, Jennifer LaFleur, Kent Osborne, David Sullivan, Jade Sealey, Deborah Dopp
GENRE: Drama Film
SYNOPSIS: Grieving her mother’s death and her own failing marriage, Lexi (Gemma Brockis) boards a plane from London to Los Angeles in search of the estranged father who abandoned her when she was three-years-old. Based out of a seedy Hollywood motel, she follows a tenuous trail of breadcrumbs, beginning with his aging former in-laws, collecting numbers and addresses in the hopes that one will lead to her father. Along the way, she establishes other unexpected connections: her father’s ailing former second wife (Deborah Dopp), her bitter half-sister Tanya (Jennifer Lafleur) and her caregiver girlfriend (Jade Sealey), and two local barflies (David Sullivan and Kent Osborne). A stranger in the City of Angels, Lexi’s reckless searching leads to cautious discoveries in this atmospheric and introspective quest. No Light and No Land Anywhere is an assured exploration of the ties that bind us to (and unbind us from) the people we love, and to the people we wish would love us back.
