This is a genius short by the Scottish filmmaker Ewan Stewart We were shown this film in class and I immediately fell in love with it. It is completely genius within, what would appear to be, a mundane subject. Brilliantly scripted and cleverly filmed.
It won awards everywhere it showed and quite rightly so.
