Cusp, directed by Oliver Warren (UK, 15 minutes)
Kyle, a seventeen year-old outsider drifts through life. The passing of days marked by endless shifts at the struggling Chicken Box restaurant. His only brightness lies in his unconventional affair with 24 year-old Amber - married and life-weary. Confusing attention for love, their illicit, and outdoor, relationship marks his only form of kinship amid a town that neither cares for nor likes him. One night, a chance encounter with the self-proclaimed ‘town trannie’, Michael, whose sixty years in this town have left him shackled through fear of what lies beyond, leads Kyle to set out on a path to the big city.
