The project’s financing has come from crowdfunding (£60,000 through the sale of 400 shares in the film) as well as backing from Northern Ireland Screen.

The film tells two interconnecting stories, about a rising Belfast banker (Aidan Gillen) who accidentally causes a stranger’s death, and a South African teenager (Thabang Sidloyi) growing up in a township and hoping for a better life. The cast also features Kelly Campbell, Lalor Roddy and Jonathan Harden.

Susan Picken produces.

Harrison recently made the award-winning short Even Gods.
