Returning home the morning after graduation, Jim Swanson discovers an intruder in his home. Only after tracking him down and running him over in his car does he find out the intruder is his best friend from university.
Coming home on the train the morning after graduation, Jim Swanson meets Mary - the girl he liked from university. He invites her back to his place where they are shocked to find somebody already in the house. The intruder runs off and Jim pursues him in his dad's car. He finds him and runs him over - only then does he discover that the intruder is Jeff, his slacker best friend from university. Throughout the rest of the morning they wait for a taxi to take Jeff to the hospital and on the way they talk about university, girls and movies until they finally get to the root of the problems that have plagued their friendship for years.

Originally, the role of Mary was going to be played by Lauren Smith, a friend of Eric Bay-Andersen's from university, but a week before shooting she backed out. She had been involved with the project for several months and wanted to do it, but filming had been delayed so many times that she had to move back home. For sticking with the film for so long she is credited with a 'thanks' in the credits. Yasha Shrimpton, another friend of Eric's from university, accepted the role the same day and learned all her dialogue in one week. See more »

The next stop is Weybridge. Change here for Addlestone, Chertsey, Virginia Water, Egham and Staines. Please mind the gap between the train and the platform edge.

The two classical piano pieces Jim listens to on the radio are credited as being performed by Peter Anno. In actuality they are demo pieces taken from an electric piano (Peter Anno - P. Anno - piano) See more »
Great! considering there was probably no money involved.
I saw this film here on IMDb two days ago and i honestly think that considering that there was no money involved it was brilliant. If there was a budget then i would completely retract that statement. If there was any bad things about it at all it was the camera-work was a bit shaky, maybe you guys should've got something stable to put it on and i thought SOME of the dialogue was kinda amateurish and cheesy, like i mean considering its set in Britain there seems to be way too much copying of "clerks"- esquire dialogue and its as if its trying too hard in places. I thought the beginning was only KIND OF boring up until the Jeff character arrives (by the way that Joshua David Hall guy is he like a real actor? because his performance was what kept it going in a way) i thought the way the one take shots was done was fantastic, so well done to Ben Arnold as he is credited, it was wonderful the way he is never seen in the movie with the amount of one takes, apart from the shakiness at the beginning which was maybe unavoidable his camera-work is great for a debut. All in all well done to Eric bay Andersen (who also acts very naturally) for a great first effort, if this is these guys FIRST then i hope to see more from them. It seems to be a good trio for filmaking.
