WINNER Tiernan McBride Award for Best Short Drama at the 31st Galway Film Fleadh
Over the course of a fraught evening, Cynthia navigates her once familiar circle of friends, and comes to realise some things can’t be mended. Clementine, her best friend, wants everything to simply go back to how it was. But things have changed, and the full weight of everything left unsaid begins to bear down on the table. There is an elephant in the room, and it demands attention.
Drink is had, tensions are high, and devastating things are said. Things that cannot be taken back.
