The Transition (2017)

Luke Kennard

An early thirties couple are forced to move in with an older couple in this dark and very funny thought experiment.

What do you do with a generation who’ve had everything, but still can’t grow up ? Welcome to The Transition.

While taking part in The Transition you and your partner will spend six months living under the supervision of your mentors, two successful adults of a slightly older generation. Freed from your financial responsibilities, you will be coached through the key areas of the scheme – Employment, Nutrition, Responsibility, Relationship, Finances and Self-Respect – until you are ready to be reintegrated into adult society.

At the end of your six months – who knows what discoveries you’ll have made about yourself? The ‘friends’ you no longer need. The talents you’ll have found time to nurture. The business you might have kick-started.

Who knows where you’ll be ?
