iNANiMATE OBjECTS

Synopsis

A short grey comedy (…watch out, they’re deadly!)

SYNOPSIS: Inanimate Objects. Everyone has trouble with them. They grab, fall, pinch, tug, trip, bruise, mame…and kill. Bill’s a twenty-something country boy whose every move is affected by them. Dissatisfied with his life, he makes a regular pilgrimage from his Grandfather’s chook farm to the small country town of Pooguna in search of work and women…(short women!). This time he has secured a job that appears well suited to his talents – all Bill has to do is become an inanimate object!
