This film is for the benefit of numerous competitions and festivals in 2022. It is a straight, character centred drama, intended to make a statement about alcoholism in the UK and how it is linked to a false image of masculinity. Cast and crew are all unpaid. Yet any revenue generated will be divided fairly.
