Dust

In the fragments of our fantasy, we see our darkest reality!

“Dust” is a psychological thriller about contemporary addiction. Addiction to love, addiction to drugs, video-computer games and losing ones mind chasing the ultimate addiction: Fantasy!

“Dust” is a debut short film by Writer & Director Nigel Mulligan that’s set in Dublin, Ireland. Introducing Sorcha Fahy as Cassie and Jamie Doyle as Art. 

Cassie (meaning: unheralded Prophetess) has recently experienced a family break-up and is trying to find her place in the world. She loves to escape into the party scene where she meets Art, who is recently separated from a bitter break-up but quickly re-bounds and falls for Cassie and is intrigued by her quirky existential meanderings. Doubt starts to emerge and questions begin to be asked of not only Cassie’s mental health and but a haunting dark past. Cassie tries to suture what seem like delusions by experimenting with a new drug on street called 2CB. This further blurs the boundaries between fantasy and reality seducing Cassie more into a fiction of a video game while drawing Art deeper into her psychotic collapse and ultimately his cataclysmic downfall.
