Written by Tim Firth
Sky Arts are showing Tim's short film for their Playhouse season. TIMELESS stars Sylvia Syms and Cara Delevingne as a young war fiance and her great gran who one day get a knock on the door which turns their lives upside down and blows apart the age gap which separates them. Scheduled for broadcast this Thursday 19th June at 9.00pm. Also available On Demand.

Alice and Chloe may be generations apart but both share the pain of having been separated from their partners by war. Chloe's soldier fiancé is serving a term of duty in Afghanistan when an army official arrives at Alice's door. The two women are shocked by the news but the generation gap is finally closing. Sylvia Syms and Cara Delevingne star in this engaging tale of love, loss and hope.
