This short film is produced as part of MetFilm School Film & TV Production masters program.
It represents a first collective effort at producing and will see the collaboration of a variety of cosmopolitan students and young professionals.
"Scratches" is the story of real encounter, lived by the director: one of the rare occasions when reality overpowers drama and two very different life paths are able to cross, connect for a brief moment and somehow overlap, before deviating again in the normal flow of life as we know it. It’s a story of hope found in the dirt, in the scratches of life that cover these two humans.
In the weird warm comfort of a wet British night our two broken humans, a sleepless middle aged man and a young homeless girl, find the courage to dedicate time and patience to comfort each other, trying to put together the pieces of the absurd puzzle that is their life.
