The best UK Sci-Fi short films that look at the theme of identity through the lens of cloning, time travel and space flight. Are we who we think we are, were and will be when our DNA, past and very existence are all up for grabs?

When Frank spins the open cylinder of his double-action revolver, we hear a clicking sound. In reality, the cylinder on such a revolver spins unimpeded and makes almost no noise when rotated in the open position. Clicking cylinders are unique to single-action revolvers. See more »

I was drawn up in to the story from the beginning, talk about a character driven plot which took an almost eastern perspective in learning to deal with a constant torrent of life's vicissitudes focused on one outcome - being free of it all. Kenny Johnson gives a solid performance as an ex con trying to escape a sociopath gang boss played very effectively by Brad Dourif. Rainn Wilson demonstrates a range of talent that was unexpected as a spineless cousin making me wish he would show up in more straight dramatic roles diverging from his usual comic characters. The end was completely unexpected yet believable. Impressive well written and directed script with a great cast, good music and compelling performances made me glad I saw this one at the Valley Film Festival.
