A talented, moving piece
Chris_Docker from United Kingdom

"No kissing on the mouth, and I don't like being fingered!" So Becky
lays down terms of business when withdrawn and quiet Gary picks her up
on the run-down trading estate that is the stomping ground for the
nightly hawking of her wares.
Gary is not only silent barely short of creepily so he seems
emotionally needy. Both characters are convincingly hewn. As they get
down to basics on the back seat, something happens. We're not sure what
it was but it wasn't comfortable for Becky. She puts him in his place.
He goes for a beer. She picks up a regular client. We watch Gary as he
sits in the car and cries. Then at daybreak, as she finishes work, he
follows her . . .
This well-made short packs an emotional ending that is entirely
unexpected. It points at the goodness in everyone, even in the
unlikeliest of places.
