National Night-time Shorts

"The Mud"

A grieving young couple suffer each other's company in a stale seaside home. One night, a feral mudcreature appears in their kitchen. Upon washing her, they discover a malleable innocent fit to become a lady! Maybe.

"Meaning of Robots"

Mike Sullivan has been shooting a stop-motion robot sex film in his apartment for the past 10 years. Now his miniature robot porn stars are threatening to squeeze him out of the space he needs to shoot his epic.

"The Dark Companion"

Howard (a puppet) has an existential crisis and nervous breakdown when he, and only he, can see his puppeteer... a featureless, humanoid shape that always looms over him, that he calls his 'Dark Companion'. His relationship with his wife and friends quickly breakdown, when no one believes him, forcing Howard to take drastic measures.

"Detras Del Espejo (Behind The Mirrors)"

The death of a woman complicates the underground business of a sleazy motel's janitor.

"Rolling On The Floor Laughing"

Two grown brothers return home for their widowed mother's birthday, only to find themselves competing with a strange man for her affection.

"Man and Gun"

Deep in the woods of New Hampshire, Martin Fletcher keeps his AK-47 close and Glock 22 even closer. One fateful day Martin stumbles upon an internet video of the Barrett M82.A1 .50 caliber assault rifle, the most powerful gun that a civilian can buy. His resulting obsession with the gun leads him to contact a gun collector in a nearby town. When the deal to buy the Barrett goes south, Martin decides to take matters into his own hands.

"Aunt Louisa"

'Aunt Louisa' is about a young man living with his fiancee in Manhattan, who is visited out of the blue by a very weird aunt from the country whom he has not seen for many years. She suggests they go for coffee, during which she informs him simply that 'Moira came back'. Although he at first seems to have no memory of Moira, mention of her name kicks off an odd and confusing trip through the city, out to the country and into his past.


A deaf and blind woman and a young man share a spiritual and disturbing connection.
