Storyline

It's been a week since Willem's horrible car accident, and even though the good news is that he managed to survive, on the other hand, the bad news is that the inoperable nerve damage in his spinal cord has paralysed the muscles responsible for smiling. As a result, Willem must now learn to adapt to a new reality, where a permanent smile glued on his face will follow him for the rest of his life. Thank God, you are alive Willem, after all, it's just a minor disability, isn't it? Written by Nick Riganas

Sad it's not feature length.

So much soul fleshed into characters for a short that's only 8 minutes long. Defoe is endearing and tugs on your emotions in the same short space of time you might find yourself laughing hilariously. Marvelous!
