Would anyone miss you? Nobody noticed when Joyce Vincent died in her bedsit above a shopping mall in London in 2003. Nearly three years later her skeleton remains were discovered, surrounded by Christmas presents with the television still on. Dreams of a Life is an imaginative, powerful, multilayerd quest to discover who Joyce Vincent was. It is a film about urban lives, contemporary life, and how, like Joyce, we are all different things to different people. It is about how little we may ever know each other, but nevertheless, how much we can love.
