    OMG how many times I hold the keys like a weapon. Thank good I never needed to see if that actually works.

  • Lisa says:

    Really gripping. Well done!

  • Ione says:

    Brilliant! Good luck

  • Kate says:

    Realistically enacted and so tense to watch, wondering what I’d do if in her shoes. Sadly I’ve felt the same fear many times, as I’m sure most women have too. A powerful portrayal, well done.

  • This!! What an amazing film that sums up exactly what it’s like to be a woman alone at night.

  • Pam says:

    This is so Well captured and sadly very true. As a woman, I have truely felt like this more than several times and sadly I’m sure my daughter will also go through this.

  • Fran Goggins says:

    Wow this resonates so much with anyone woman who walks home. Everyone scares the life out you.
    The relief when she reaches home phew !!!! The tension was palatable.

  • Melanie Ellison says:

    So relatable – all ending in that adrenaline rush trying to get your keys into the damn door!

  • Leila says:

    My heart was beating, my breath changed matching hers. How scary, how normal.

  • Highlights the way most women feel. Kept me on the edge of my seat. Great filming !

  • It should not be like this, but it is. Most people, especially males, are in denial about this fear. Unfortunately, the fear is rational.

  • Ingrid Sciberras says:

    Great Filming ! Reality at its best !

  • Ruth Renling says:

    Well Done.
    Great filming.
    Everyone should watch this. Awarness How women feel walking home Alone.

  • Kate says:

    Experienced all too often that its normalised and hasn’t been challengedfor years. But yes we should challenge it! Why should we be afraid to walk our streets in the dark.

  • Roseanne Maile says:

    Brilliant! Flawless! No cliches! Style simply goes to the emotion…

  • Catherine says:

    Wow. This video is short but powerful. We shouldn’t have to leave in a society where we feel like that on a short walk home. But unfortunately it is the world we live in. The lacing the keys through your fingers, I always do that!

  • Bex Tindle says:

    Love this! I was there the whole time, my stress response kicked off and I was in the movie myself. Really well shot and great acting as well. I was totally convinced and with the protagonist the whole time.

    How many times have I felt like this? I have a family now and don’t go out so much but am still determined that I should walk if I feel like it and this feeling never disappears. It doesn’t take much to trigger the stress response, a shadow or an unexpected sound is all it takes. It’s such a shame and so unfair that we should feel like this.

  • Anouska Torrance says:

    So gripping & amazingly edited!

  • Melodie King says:

    Brilliant and amazingly edited

  • Frankie Zambra says:

    Couldn’t be more relevant right now. Beautiful work.

  • Kaz Hollowell says:

    an incendiary piece, perfectly edited to capture every woman’s nightmare feeling, just walking home. Want to see more.

  • Kristi Corcione says:

    Well done….and scary! Good luck, Tatjana and Louise!

  • Carmen Jenness says:

    What woman can’t relate? Very well done!
