Who Is Alice?

Synopsis: 'Who is Alice' carries us on a darkly funny, compelling and sometimes cringe worthy journey into the highs and lows of what human beings will do to try to avoid pain and connect to happiness. Alice is a 35 year old actress desperately hanging on to her 'new young thing' career. She is willing to sacrifice almost everything in order to reach the top and this mind-bending story takes us down the rabbit hole with her. Alice meets Dick, a car salesman who is disillusioned with life and dreaming about becoming a spiritual teacher. Together with a renegade cast of misfit characters they hilariously and awkwardly tie themselves in knots as they find their 'way'. And where does that 'way' lead them? ... To exactly where they are supposed to be. 'Who is Alice' uses humor guided by the a little non-dual thinking to help us look at ourselves and life in a different way. If the insight strikes, your whole perspective can change, while 'in reality' nothing has to change.

- Thank you! Thank you!

So, 1600 a month?

- Yep, that's what it is.

- Well, I want to rent

the apartment, not the

whole block.

- It has got everything

you could possibly need.

I mean it's close to the shops,

the tube station is right down the road,

it has got some great pubs on the corner

and it's furnished.

- Yeah, I know.

- So you'll take it right?

- Uh, well.

- You're an actress, aren't you?

- Yeah.

- Yeah, yeah, I saw you in the silent

- Day.

- The Silent Day.

Yeah, you were really good.

- Okay, well I don't want to push you,

but this place is going to be rented

by the end of the day.

- Really?

- Yeah, I mean, these types

of apartments are almost

impossible to find.

I've got like 10 people coming by

to visit this place just today.

- 10?

- Yeah.

- Yeah right.

- Jonathan, hi, please

tell me I got the job.

Oh f*ck.

Did they get my script?

Did they like it?

What?

Not enough drama?

My script is so much better than all

this Hollywood crap.

Yeah, yeah, I'm sorry too.

Okay, speak to you tomorrow.

Bye.

F*ck.

I'll take it.

- Morning Sandra.

- Good morning Dick,

I hope you don't mind

but we've all started working already.

- No, I don't mind.

- Oh, it's really good to see you anyway.

- Yeah, you too.

And you know I'm wishing you double

what you're wishing me.

- I can't go to hell twice, Dick.

- Yeah, but two Sandra's

wouldn't fit anyway, would they?

Morning mate.

- I just sold them an Audi Q5.

That's number 87 so far.

What?

You're not happy for your best friend?

Are you feeling depressed?

- No, I'm reading this book,

it's fascinating.

- Selling cars for dummies?

- Don't be a Dick Sandra.

It's about ancient wisdom.

- Ah.

- Oh, nice.

- Did you know that when you buy a car,

you feel happy right?

But it isn't according to this,

the car that causes the happiness.

The happiness is created by the fact that

in that moment you are free from desire.

And so for a moment life

is as good as it gets.

- Listen, happiness is the absence

of striving for happiness.

Chuang Tzu.

- Yeah.

- Mate, do you never

think about this stuff?

Like what it's all about?

Because you know what.

I was reading this last night

and do you know what I realized?

- You're having a midlife crisis?

- I realized who I was.

- Come on Dick, our meeting's starting.

- Right guys, listen up.

First of all the results so far.

Leo, 86.

- I just sold an Audi Q5.

- My correction, 87.

Philip, 79, above expectation.

Arno, 71.

And Dick, 29.

You sold just 1 car over

the last two weeks Dick.

Success is a choice.

It all depends on one question.

Are you an eagle or a Duck?

- I'm sorry?

- Are you an eagle or a Duck Dick?

I want only eagles on my team.

Ducks they just swim and waddle.

Now an eagle flies,

has a great overview

and knows precisely when to swoop

and get its prey.

- Yeah, but I'm a vegetarian.

- You have one more

month to prove yourself,

otherwise you're out.

Moving on gentlemen.

Next item.

- Hi sweet.

- Hi.

- How was the audition?

- Yeah, they seemed to like it.

I think it went well.

- Great!

Where's Anna?

- What?

I thought you were picking her up.

You knew I had an audition.

- You said

- No, no, you relax, stay here,

don't worry about it,

I'll go and get her.

- Take my car!

- Oh, thank you very much.

Anna!

- Mum!

- You cannot just walk home on your own.

- You didn't pick me up.

- I'm sorry.

Come on, come with me.

Are you alright?

- Can I have a sweetie?

- Yep.

So how was your day at school?

- We had sports day.

- What?

- You forgot to bring my sports clothes.
