One big win for personal growth.
Quietly powerful, this short film sneaks up on you, building emotional intensity until it lets everything out in one final punch to the heart.
It tells the tale of a homeless man, struggling to find a place to spend the night, who accidentally becomes involved with a deaf/blind man trying to get a bus home.
The lure of taking financial advantage of his new companion is huge, and largely understandable, given the first man’s situation.
But director Doug Roland is telling a different story, and he guides us to a note-perfect finale.
