Hayley leads a dull and uninspiring life working at her local cash and carry. During her cigarette break one day however, she meets Lizzie - an outgoing and confident girl who is carrying out her community service.
After an initial clash in personalities, Hayley gradually becomes more open and confident, leading to an unexpected friendship between the two girls.
Spending some time together over three days, Hayley learns from Lizzie that she can take control of her life and take it in any direction she chooses.
Transcripts / Production notes / Scripts
Feeling a detachment from my previous films was the worst feeling ever...this project has been a personal journey into my interests and my style as a filmmaker and I can honestly say its been an amazing learning curve.
What I learnt about myself as a director and an individual was that I've always considered myself an 'Observer' or a 'People Watcher'...I enjoy simply sitting back and watching how people interact with each other, how people bond and how people react in certain situations and I wanted this observational aspect of my personality to come across in my next film.
It was important to me to have a strong emphasis on dialogue, a technique I've not tackled before but was eager to explore, I wanted to show a special connection between two individuals who are complete opposites and how they are able to bond with each other.
I tried to keep it logistically simple, limiting myself to two locations within close proximately so I could concentrate solely on performance and I really think it shows through.
