A writer struggles to balance the magical worlds of her stories with the realities of being a single mum in an increasingly crazy world. Over the course of one day, her characters cross from the page to the real world to show her that magic isn’t an illusion after all.
Reality v Fantasy
Life and Death
The centre must hold
Magical Balance explores the internal and external forces which shape our reality. The blurred lines between the real and the imaginary, between sanity and insanity, dreams and memories.
Mica, a single mum and writer, escapes the depressing reality of a world gone crazy by losing herself in the stories of Amy and Nina. More than mere characters in her scripts, they are constantly with her, constantly challenging her not to give up on her dreams. Not to give up on their stories or the magic that is present in the world.
The stories of these three women take place over the course of one day. Seemingly unrelated, they each present different answers to the same questions; What happens when we die? What happens when hope dies? Who writes the story of our life? What is magic?
When they finally come together as one, they create a precariously magical balance in which all three can all continue to exist.
