Holiday Island – British comedy drama about typical British holidaymakers

British comedy drama


Holiday Island – a British comedy drama, is set in a typical if superior quality holiday hotel in a popular tourist resort, such as Tenerife. A group of newly arrived holiday-makers are just convening in the lobby. They are kitted-out in predictably loud holiday apparel, starting out as a pretty anonymous-looking bunch. As they check-in however, slowly getting to know each other and going about the business of enjoying their holidays, we detect the emergence of their true characters. The cultural and social aspects of their lives though interesting, are not nearly as captivating as their psychological depths. A poignant, yet funny British comedy drama that shows people as they really are when they are away from the comfort of home.
