is a short film about responsibility and loss.
David (18) and Leon (16) are family friends who are left at home together while their parents holiday in Bali. David plans to host a big pool party with all of his mates, despite his parents' wishes, however, Leon is determined to drink. David allows him so long as he doesn't tell, in spite of Leon's age. The party goes ahead and we are introduced to Marcus (19), David's best friend who is very opposing to Leon's actions and drinking. Leon starts to get dangerously drunk and it becomes the final straw for David and Marcus. Leon slips. He hits his head on the pool ledge and David dives in after him. Leon is unresponsive and the party goes silent...
