Synopses

Daydreams (Adrienne Marrone)

Sara Wilson appears to be your average 28-year-old girl. She has a job, friends and lives with her all-too-perfect boyfriend. But unless she can break free from her protectors, Sara stands to lose everything, including her mind.

Casting Impressions (Vinay Kolhatkar)

A call girl who wants to change her life gets the right opportunity by seducing the wrong client. It’s a hilarious, farcical short film.

Imaginary Friends (Ash Priest & Brodie Rocca)

Caroline and Grey have been dating for a year and he’s yet to tell her about Jack, his imaginary friend. However, breaking up with Jack is more difficult than he anticipated and Caroline is convinced he wants to end things.

The Last Day (Craig Linke)

On the final day of teaching Anita and Vanessa, teachers at a remote school, attempt to put aside their differences — but that is easier said than done as each blames the other for the closing of the school.
