Poppets is a surreal soap opera about an Essex girl investigating malpractice in a local housing development and 2 women who meet and fall in love on a night out at a suburban entertainment multiplex: Bas Vegas. Oh, and their boyfriends. They are psychically linked to the story of 2 Plotlands women (as overshared by an old man in the smoking area) who visit their local witch to make a poppet. A journey through 4 generations of capitalist town planning, from the smallholdings of the 1800s to the luxury flats built on floodplains of the future.
