When their two worlds collide on what appears to be another uneventful ordinary day. The life of accountant Daniel and pickpocket Isla are never going to be quite the same again.
Set in London with some of the Capitals most iconic and recognisable landmarks in the backdrop. The events all take place in one day. Time is the main theme running throughout this short film.
Skinners latest short film explores the concept of time. How do we spend our time? Who demands our time? What more could we do to fulfil our time? Are the jobs we choose worthy of our time? Many of us reach a time in life when we re-evaluate our lives and decide to make changes. And for Daniel and Isla how could their time be now if they had done things differently.
Isla’s strong belief and advice to Daniel is that everything happens for a reason. This idea lends itself to one of the possible explanations of how Daniel keeps finding her after she disappears, in this vast landscape.
As with so many short films. There isn’t a neat solution or a happy ever after. Instead the opportunity to question and perhaps reflect on how you spend your time. Could you, like Daniel and Isla make certain changes to improve how your time could be spent to improve life?
