14m Short, Drama 2021

SCUZZ

Kim is a bassist in a Glasgow band. Playing a dingy venue surrounded by art-school snobs, her now ex-boyfriend and frontman Lee included, Kim just wants an escape from the shallow scene. When Lee’s guitar is stolen, Kim feels responsible and gives chase. Racing past bustling traffic, clubbers and neon-bathed nightlife, the pursued and pursuer eventually come to a head. To Kim’s surprise, she discovers not a hard-faced criminal - but a 14-year-old boy, Ryan, looking to learn how to play. Through a shared love of music, some fast food and teaching her ex a lesson, two strangers for one night find an unlikely connection.
