On 23 June 2016, the UK voted by 52% to 48% to leave the European Union.

Most voters were left to decide on an issue of colossal complexity based on nothing more incisive than personal emotion or partially informed preference - without the slightest indication of the likely consequences.

Despite the closeness of the vote, every day since has pressed forward towards the precipice of EU departure, in spite of a growing catalogue of unanswered questions, economic uncertainties and deeply negative warnings that have come to light in its wake.

In a landscape where the only voice to be heard comes from those ignoring completely the views of nearly half the electorate, this film is an attempt to inject facts and points of view from Remainers into the process.
