Synopsis: Set in an alternate universe, in a college called FAERYVILLE, a group of teenage misfits struggle to find themselves and make sense of their ‘teenhood’. They decide that there is no reason in trying to fit-in, and fashioned themselves as pranksters, calling themselves The Nobodies. Now, what’s their plan? Frankly, they have no idea, until Laer, a transfer student, joins them and takes them on a path of anarchy and self discovery.
Faeryville is a dystopian teen movie, a stylish coming of age film about youth making sense of their idealistic dreams in our increasingly surreal world - a fictional manifestation of very real issues prevalent in the Post 9-11 world.
“We're against the idea of fighting for what you believe in. Especially, in confused times like this, where nothing is right or wrong anymore...and ideology, a dangerous thing.” – Tzang M.
