Sean Harris (Macbeth) is on magnificently twisted form as Philip, a troubled children’s puppeteer who is forced to face up to his wicked stepfather (Armstrong, delivering an equally deranged performance) and the dark and surreal secrets that have tortured him his entire life. As Philip deals with his past, he also has to face up to Possum, the hideous hand puppet he keeps in a black leather case. He finds escaping the will of Possum is as hard as dealing with his demons.

Possum will be screened on general release from Fri 26 Oct.
