CGiii Comment

A film that reflects these [frustrating and overly sensitive] times...done with an authoritative and biting assurance.

Writing, direction and performances all gel perfectly...as they should in a [short] film.

Yes, it's savagely funny...because, it's savagely true. The 'youngsters' will probably find it offensive...whereas the 'elders' will reflect and nod knowingly.

The price of equality is mundane!


Watch...

The(ir) Blurb...

What appears to be a regular poker night ends up being a reveal of John's deepest secrets. But his friends' reactions are what troubles him the most.
