SYNOPSIS

Hopetown is an independently-made short film by Westley Gibbons and Tony Briggs.  It follows Jon who,

after missing his last train home, finds himself wandering the streets of the city.  Tormented by issues with

his father, he suffers the night from hell until salvation arrives in the form of two unlikely allies.  With their help

he finds a way home, in every sense of the word.

Influenced by the work of Mike Leigh, John Schlesinger and Ken Loach, Hopetown is a character piece about

three people, drawn together by chance. Each live in the shadows and each struggles with regret, expectation

and remorse.  Yet all three are surviving with their strength, love and hope. Filled with comedy and heartfelt

emotion, Hopetown is beautifully shot in black and white and showcases excellent performances from three

lead actors; Steve Furst, Grant Gillespie and Aakash Shukal.
