Storyline

A Helping Hand is a cautionary tale about the perils of giving. Cynthia, a successful physical therapist, leads a life devoid of meaning and love. She spends her free time cruising dating websites searching for the right man, or the wrong man with the right gear. Then one day she meets Donna, a strangely compelling homeless girl. Cynthia decides to cross the divide that separates them and offer Donna a helping hand. Donna has been waiting patiently for that help, like a spider awaits a fly. Written by Michael Stone / Todd Smith

A unique story of the dangers of giving a helping hand in these desperate times.
18 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A very interesting and timely short, with amazing performances by all the actors, and great direction and production values. It reminds me of a foreign film in terms of the pace and the story line. It could be an analogy to the great separation between the have and the have nots. When one of the more successful members of society attempts to help someone who is seemingly homeless, the question becomes who is the most needy. The short explores these themes in a fascinating matter, and the tone reflects the characters' situation to perfection. The shots have a beautiful look of composition, which contrasts with the inner struggles of the characters. Everyone appears to need a helping hand, but the characters who don't seem to need this help need it the most.
