Years and years ago, Hope disappeared. Now, she’s back. To find something she left behind.

But in the People’s Republic of Koka Kola – a world of dwindling resources, corruption and corporate giants – what happens to Hope?

Follow Hope on a surreal and frenetic quest through a hyper-capitalist country.


Hope has a Happy Meal is a co-production with SISTER.
