CGiii Comment

An exceptional short film.

Mature and sensitive matched only by its wry sense of humour.

The(ir) Blurb...

Gay teenager Ben returns from his first term at Sheffield University to his wintry seaside resort home and best friend, straight Lump. They help their friend, a kindly, foul-mouthed nun, organize Christmas activities for the elderly before Lump, unemployed and likely to be thrown out of home unless he joins the Army, admits to Ben that he is jealous of his friend's success. But Ben has his problems too and the pair seek comfort in each other's company as they see in the New Year with a box of sparklers.
