This short film was made as part of our final dissertation project for the University of Bristol. It was shot on 16mm and I was involved on it as a scriptwriter and a sound designer. The film tells the story of Paul, an old man who can’t get used to his new life in an old people’s house. Some unexpected bounds are going to develop between the residents of the house, as well as a crazy idea in Paul’s mind: escaping and being young again for one night time.
