Storyline

Peter is a novelist who is going out of his mind because his wife and daughter have left him. He's bought a Smith & Wesson and put one bullet in it. He's pulled the trigger once in despairing Russian roulette. Driving to his wife's office, he pulls the gun out again when an angry motorist assaults him. Then, he begs his wife to talk to him, and she does - while she holds the pistol. His next stop is the literary agent to whom he's sent his manuscript; the pistol comes out once more. Her response is unexpected, and there's one last stop before the day ends. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Quotes

Peter: Do you know what this is? It's a Smith & Wesson model 64, .38 caliber, yeah? King's Cross Special. Do you know why I have this? Because I'm a novelist, right? You know why I'm a novelist? Because I'm obviously fucking mad.

It's short, but....GOOD!!!
9 May 2005 | by (Greece) – See all my reviews

I'ts about Peter, a young novelist who sees his life falling apart...His wife and kid had left him and he can't reach his publicist on the phone. He wants to commit suicide, he threatens other people with his loaded gun, he even threatens his publicist. Then, everything gets better...she (the publicist) loved his novel, his wife gave him a second chance, and....The rest, you've got to see it!!! I must say, it's one of the most interesting short movies I've ever seen! Gerard Butler is very good, he convinces the spectator from the first moment...You almost feel sorry for him. The ending is so unexpected, but yet it makes you realize that life is always full of surprises...even bad ones!!! Enjoy!!!
