ALMOST MIDNIGHT is a 6 x 5min coming-of-age, romantic black comedy about a socially-inept young man called Dave, who wants a fairy-tale romance, but lacks the abilities to meet and most importantly keep the woman of his dreams, especially when he is hampered by the advice of his best friend and self-professed ladies man, ‘Acka’. Dave's tale is told over six years, in five minute real-time slices of his life in the lead up to each New Years Eve countdown. As we journey through the series, in each five minutes, we witness Dave’s growth from a bumbling wall-flower to a fully-matured man, comfortable in his own skin and ready for love. But when the clock strikes midnight, will he get his wish or be turned into a pumpkin?
