In a post-apocalyptic world reminiscent of Mad Max, in which people are left to their most violent vices and bullets has become the highest currency, Deacon, Joost Bolt (“LelleBelle”, “De Punt”), the leader of a clan of marauders, regularly organizes fights to the death involving unwilling prisoners who have been injected a rage-inducing drug.
When he gets wind of a young woman with supernatural abilities, he sends his toughest acolyte Kimmy, Annelies Appelhof (“De spa (TV)”, “Import (Short)”) to catch her and get her to fight for him.
The young woman, the titular Molly, Julia Batelaan (“Photon (TV)”, “Visions (Short)”), who has been surviving in the wild ever since escaping a place that haunts her in her dreams, will have to defend herself and the young abandoned girl Bailey, Emma de Paauw, she finds on her journey.
Created by Colinda Bongers (“Hybris (Short)”) and Thijs Meuwese (“Photon (TV)”, “Visions (Short)”, Molly immerses us into a mesmerizing world, its saturated colors creating an atmosphere in between beauty and roughness, fun and danger, and its costumes full of details tell us everything we need to know about the characters sporting them.
Deacon’s top hat represents perfectly his style of clownish villainy, Kimmy’s robotic arm highlights her raw strength and lack of humanity, and Molly’s glasses and backpack filled to the brim portrays both her youthfulness and harsh life on the road.
