This award-winning amateur drama was written and directed by Keith Venn, with cast and crew from the Newcastle and District Amateur Cinematographers’ Association (ACA), and was shot at locations around Newcastle.

The film interweaves the parallel actions of three characters in the hour before 09:00am: a condemned man awaiting execution by hanging in the cells at Moot Hall County Courts; a fashion model with an unexpected assignment at the Royal Turks Head Hotel in Grey Street; and a father taking his daughter to school in West Denton.
