Wormwood

At 17, Jeff Young left home and hitched to Paris, dissatisfied with his parent's decision to move from the centre of Liverpool to the suburbs in search of a better life.

Wormwood is his personal essay - a montage drama - following his own search for Bohemia, and an alternative way of living.

It's a tale of decadence, absinthe and broken dreams, interwoven with the desperate love story of poets Verlaine and Rimbaud.
