Short Film | 2012 | Writer, Producer, Director, Director of Photography, Editor


While cutting through a park, a young man finds a handbag left unattended on a bench. This is only the start of his worries, however, as he soon finds a kite stuck in a tree. The harder he tries to get it down, the more the kite seems to resist and the more he wants it!

Shot entirely on location in Tunbridge Wells, this darkly comic fable of obsession explores what one man will sacrifice for the object of his desires.
