The Fades

The Fades

Paul (Iain De Caestecker) is the reluctant teenage hero of The Fades. He's haunted by apocalyptic dreams that neither his therapist, best friend and fellow social outcast, Mac (Daniel Kaluuya), nor his unsympathetic and much cooler twin sister, Anna (Lily Loveless) can provide answers for. Adding to his terrifying dreams, Paul starts to see spirits of the dead, known as "The Fades," all around him but they can't be seen, smelt, heard, or touched by other humans. When an embittered and vengeful Fade, Polus, finds a way to be human again, Paul, Mac, and their loved ones are all in the eye of the storm. The fate of humanity now rests in Paul's hands as he has to stop Polus - and all of the dead - from breaking back into the world and attacking the human race. Can Paul really prevent the end of the world? And at what price...? (Source: BBC)
