Two women from completely different paths are bought together night after night when Nisha hires Thea as a babysitter. As Nisha works as a single mother to support her 6-year-old daughter, Viti, and Thea struggles to finish her university studies it becomes evident how different challenges in life can be for young women. From brief conversations at the end of their late shifts to cooking together for Viti’s school gala, Nisha and Thea slowly form a friendship that neither had expected. However, Thea’s lack of understanding, Nisha’s insistent boundaries and their overall differences are what leaves their friendship as just a small glimpse in the entirety of their lives.

'The Late Shift' is a project for Victoria University of Wellington's MFA (CP) program, with intention to be released to festivals. Our crew includes filmmakers with experience on both short film and commercial sets.
