This short drama is a tight observation of family life during the recession. Shot in one single living room, we see the ebb and flow of family life reflected in some pivotal moments through a particularly difficult time. However the digital hearth remains a constant source of comfort.

  1. Excellent film! A great insight into the modern family affected by the recession. Well done!

  2. A very relatable portrayal of family life. Quite surreal watching real life through a television, is this a contrast to reality television? Good work....
