Wow...with barely a word uttered, this will summon up a whole host of emotions (and memories).

A marvellously composed film...let your tears will run freely.

Thank you - what an achievement Mr Aguirre.

The(ir) Blurb...

A random act of kindness can stem from anywhere at any given time. When popular high school jock Andy notices the odd behavior of fellow student, the shy Miles, he contemplates whether to lend a hand or ignore the issue. Andy ultimately makes a decision that can change the course of his life, and that of Miles. The short film is set in modern times at your average high school. This is a story facing the issue of 'bullying' in educational institutions. The story follows a student Andy who goes through a normal day, but makes the day extraordinary when he decides to further investigate the mysterious student Miles.
