CGiii Comment

A film that is beautifully driven, with enough gear changes to rival a feature - this has the legs to be exactly that!

Atmospheric, deeply immersive...and, beautifully scored.

What ever will become of Sami? A perfect way to end a film...by asking a question!

The(ir) Blurb...

"All Strangers Have Secrets"

Del, a workaholic struggling with her mental health, wants to escape the numbness consuming her. Despite being surrounded by people, she feels alone and is more comfortable navigating London at night. After experiencing an attempted assault by her colleague, she has a chance encounter with Sami, a homeless undocumented man from Nigeria. Del begins to question what she stands for and starts to come to terms with her own immigrant roots. But hostility and distrust are never far away and Del is forced to question how she can really help Sami when she is just as lost herself.
