Misdirection

"A jilted wife meets a mysterious stranger in a West End bar. Their flirtatious conversation inspires her dark side but she gets more than she bargained for."

The first in the Albion Tales trilogy; three interconnected shorts set in a mysterious London; Misdirection follows Steph (Lucy Cudden: Collider, Judas Ghost, Chemical Wedding), stood up by her husband in a West End bar and now approached by the seductive David (Daniel Caltagirone: Britannia, Medici: Masters Of Florence, The Pianist, The Beachs). Initially frosty, Steph thaws as he disarms her with playful magic tricks. As their flirtation deepens, they begin to reveal their darker sides - and their darker fantasies.
