Alice turns 27 today, she still lives with her parents, being lost in her illusions. Through a trippy party on a rooftop and a drunk bike accident, she learns to take responsibility.
The idea of 27 came when I finally managed to move out of my parent's place at the age of 28. I had an idea of a character who is an adult but lives with her parents. She is always entering a dreamy erotic fantasyland, like Alice in wonderland, and trying to fulfil her needs there, because reality seems to be just too hard to handle. I decided to call her Alice. In 2019, I spent a year travelling and I constantly ran into people who had similar experiences. It made me realize that this is a very common problem. I started a research and found out that just in Central Europe actually 70% of the young adults between 25-35 eventually move back to their parent’s place after college or never even move out. Since it is very much based on my experiences and I successfully passed this period of life, I would like to show a positive perspective. I’d like to encourage people who are in the same situation not to give up and learn to accept that it is okay to have such moments in life.
