Synopsis
ON THE FRINGE is a tense, social thriller telling the interweaving stories of three characters, told over the course of one day. Azucena has 24 hours to prevent herself and her family being evicted from their home by the bank intent on repossessing it. Rafael is a passionate lawyer and activist who strives to advocate for the victims of this modern day crisis. His wife is pregnant and needs his support but when he witnesses social workers taking a young child into care, he has to decide whether to spend his day tracking down the mother before it is too late or whether to focus on his own family. Theodora is a grandmother searching for her long lost son to say goodbye to him before her heart-wrenching situation reaches its conclusion. Today is a day like no other for all three characters. We accompany them as their lives hang in the balance. All the while, the clock continues to tick, like an unexploded bomb.
