Breathe… cross-platform drama launching 10 October 2009

Breathe… comprises of three short films made up of scripted narrative, live events & online interactions. The experience lasts for 15 days with a weekly film instalment.

Pathologist reports suggest each victim had been asphyxiated, but there are no strangle marks, signs of struggle or evidence of a drug overdose – “someone wanted it to look as if each person had just run out of air whilst asleep in bed.”
