Helen (Pauline McLynn) has been married to Paul (Paul McGann) for twenty-five years. She lives a monotonous and frozen existence. Helen is desperate, damaged, and looking for change.
Paul is on the brink of a breakdown, sick and tired of being in the poverty trap. Bitter, hypocritical, and bigoted, Paul's biggest fear is change.
Into their lives comes Tasha (Chloe Sirene), a Romany Czech refugee, awaiting her British passport and her chance for freedom - a concept taken for granted by all those around her.
Gypo, told in three revelatory narratives, each from a particular character's point of view, reveals how the disintegration of an ordinary working class family finally comes to a head when unexpected emotions are unleashed.
An innovative, gripping and engaging journey into the heart of a dysfunctional British family on the Kent coast, Gypo reveals how suburban fears and tabloid sensationalism have come to perpetuate the myths surrounding refugees.
