    I really got a sense of how emotionally draining being a Police Officer can be, yet at the same time could see how supportive of one another the Police Officers were. Beautifully acted in a very understated way . Wanted to see more.

    This has left me wanting more! Although a short film, it has really captured how complex the work of a police officer is. The light moments make the harder moments even more real.

    Loved this very real and told the various incidents in a police officer life could watch as drama series well done xx

  • Nigel Wilson says:

    Really felt the emotion in this short film. The emotional ups and downs of the police officers were portrayed very sensitively . The female actor police officer was very strong and I was immersed in her character. The ping of the microwave at the end , summed up her day . Well done
