When his first love Joanna is killed at a local train station, average school boy Callum struggles to cope with feelings of guilt, grief and fear. Finding himself increasingly isolated and with the police starting to ask questions, Callum must look for the courage to do the right thing.
"Moving, relevant and poetic. Well structured and acted film with a bold soundtrack. This is a strong director in control of the craft."
Lone Scherfig (director of An Education, One Day, The Riot Club)
"Fantastic! I hope James Tarpey (Callum) never stops working! The regret, pain and consequences were tangible."
Olivia Colman (actress, Broadchurch, Tyrannosaur, Hot Fuzz)
"A masterclass of understatement, perfectly pitched and 100% believable and touching."
Jon Harris (editor Kingsman: The Secret Service, 127 Hours, Kick Ass, Snatch)
"Very good filmmaking. Technically brilliant, with framing of shots incredibly crisp and finely controlled. Rare to see understanding of how different filming techniques show psychological states of mind. Michael van der Put has a great combination of craft and passion that marks out a real filmmaker and is destined to make feature films."
Tim McInnery (actor Notting Hill, Severance, Blackadder)
