A proposed 25 minute short film
Late night. Following a party celebrating a major financial deal, Angie, a highly successful wheeler-dealer in the City, drives home alone. As she approaches her apartment in the Docklands, a stranger (Sean) suddenly appears in front of her headlights, rooted in the middle of the road. Unable to swerve away, Angie’s car hits Sean who crashes through her windscreen headfirst.
Angie’s car screeches to a halt in the middle of a deserted landscape, Sean firmly embedded in the windscreen, unconscious. Angie tries to dislodge Sean from her car, but fails.
In shock and alone, Angie drives the car home through the deserted streets and locks it up in her garage—out-of-sight and out-of-mind.
The next morning, still disorientated, Angie discovers Sean splayed on her kitchen floor, bloody and broken-boned, but still alive.
Anxious, but fascinated, Angie nurses Sean and finds clues to his identity. But the increasingly lucid Sean confronts Angie with a dilemma: ‘call for help, or kill me’. Slowly, Sean draws Angie into a fateful power-game, turning the tables between ‘victim’ and ‘perpetrator’.
