About this film

“It ain’t easy, but it’s simple…” wise words from someone so young. But can a new life simply be a bus ride away?

A chance bus stop encounter between Karen, a shy, introverted woman and Niki, a loud, over-confident teenage girl takes a deeper turn, when personal secrets are inadvertently revealed, and confessions take the place of pleasantries.

Written and Directed by Paul Murphy, Produced by Mark Downes

Film London and Eastern Edge Film Fund funded short, 2012

    Engaging all round. But I'd like to give particular mention here about the excellent audio. Nice audio perspective on the edits and a good tight sound on the close-ups. Just a little confused about the inflated credits - did you really need all those individuals to produce this?
    4 Stars from me.

    Massive story for so little dialogue. Amazing performances too giving real depth to a real world problem. Simple music just at the end when a lesser director would have used it throughout. It looks very simple but it takes great craft to make something that strong, look easy. Congrats all round...

    I tried to put 5 stars but my computer or your site doesn't agree and won't take my vote. Why is IT always complicated!!!!

    At last a film that makes sens and which is engaging. No avant-garde stuff thanks God! A good story is sooo rare. And the message is there. Usually messages are forbidden! At the end the film is also original for all that.
