OUT (drama/comedy/LGBTQ, UK, 17min)



Mary (Jeff Kristian) is a divorced middle-aged mother living in a small English town. One weekend she receives the visit of her closet-emerging son Oscar.

How will Mary make sense of her son's coming out and the small-town mentality that surrounds her?

Blending high-drama theatrics with black comedy OUT is a coming-out story unlike any other you have seen before.
