Set on VJ day in 1945, ‘In the Mood’ follows the lives of three sassy young women as they prepare for the village VJ day celebrations. The party atmosphere is dampened when Michelle discovers her GI boyfriend is soon to be shipped back home.

Notes: Originally a commission from The Polka Dots singing trio, the short film grew from the initial musical numbers only, into a fully fledged dramatic narrative.
