SHC (spontaneous human combustion)
A confrontation with a fortune teller sends Sweeney and his girlfriend Cathy wavering between paranoia and superstition as they anticipate the premonition of Sweeney's unlikely demise.

Adapted from a one act play written by Ren Patterson, the short is a fast-paced drama that follows Sweeney after a fortune teller explains to him that he is going to burst into flames at seven o'clock that evening. As he and Cathy try to rationalize the ramblings of the clairvoyant they are forced to question themselves, each other, and the world around them.
