In a small town on the eastern coast of Australia lives the quiet and caring Sophie. Her only relationships are with town gossip Bea, with whom she works at the local butcher, and her grandson Liam, a single paramedic.
Sophie has been marginalise for nearly a decade in the wake of a fatal accident involving her daughter, and the dominating Bea has given Sophie hopes of rejoining the community by “weaving her magic with the girls”.

Just when things are finally looking up, Sophie stumbles upon something dark and inconceivable that forces her to make an impossible decision. A decision for love…

Director BIO: Steve Hally (TWISTED SOBRIETY)

Short Film played at the September 2017 Action / Crime / Thriller FEEDBACK Film Festival

Director Statement on TWISTED SOBRIETY: 

We shot this film over a hectic 8 day shoot, in three major locations. From a beautiful Georgian flat in Clapham Common to the world business centre of London in Canary Wharf.  We had and have an amazing supportive crew that truly believed in our project and the ideals and concepts of our story.
We used top end film industry professionalism in crew but also top end film industry equipment. Two high spec 5k camera units were used to get the beautiful and mood sentric shots that build and wrap our story into the success it has become. The Sony F65 and the Red Pro 5.0 were the tools of our trade and the results speak for themselves.
