17 year old written/directed BFI funded short film.
"One of the best short films of the year" - UK FILM REVIEW
A story about Beth, a mother who is forced to the limit for her son Ash, putting her morality to the test.
Lifeline asks how far we'd push ourselves for the people we love. The film shows that even in a brutally impossible situation, there will always be something deeply human in everyone.
