Long Synopsis

Mary Ann has been tormented her whole life by dreams of a sinister figure called the Red King and his morbid fairytale kingdom. Following the death of her father, Mary Ann returns to her family home where she recalls the childhood stories of the Red King and Alice from ‘Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland’ that her father once read to her. Amidst the decaying and neglected state of the brooding gothic family house, Mary Ann soon discovers that her once highly religious and abusive mother is now secretly engaging in black magic. A brutal bewitching attack from her mother propels Mary Ann into a dreamscape reaching into the kingdom of the Red King and beyond. In this dream world Mary Ann encounters an unlikely guide in the form of a mysterious, masked little girl calling herself Alice. Alice prompts Mary Ann to question the relevancy of the dreamscape and whether this is Mary Ann’s dream or that of the Red King’s. Haunting events and the unleashing of painful memories force Mary Ann to unlock secrets of her suppressed past as she journeys within the realms of the dream world, landing in a final confrontation with the Red King. Mary Ann must face this embodiment of her childhood fears should she forever gain closure to the pains and horrors of her past.

Boasting a vast and vivid dreamscape ‘Red Kingdom Rising’ creates a foreboding world that will bring you on a terrifying fairytale journey.
