London Film School Short Student Film - Final Call
After another hard week of climbing the corporate ladder, John’s peaceful flight home is ruined when he meets the mysterious Victoria, who’s planning on ending her life by, errr, jumping from the plane somehow, forcing him to try and save her life and consequently question if what he really needs to be doing is saving his own.

This is a world where we are constantly told that if we do this and we do that, or buy this or achieve that, then that will make us happy, but it’s rarely that simple leaving many people disillusioned and unhappy. Our film will be about challenging that concept and questioning what the best way to live our lives really is.
