Seventeen Nights

Meet Adam. Quiet, solitary, secretive. That is, until new neighbour Evelyn crash lands outside his door looking for a new life. She spends her time dating; he spends his time waiting. Over seventeen nights they grow ever more intimate but how close can they get? Seventeen Nights is a tender love story played out across the hallway of two opposite flats.

Based on a short play script, and filmed in and around a theatre set, Seventeen Nights is a stylistic, original short film that tells a theatrical story through the intimacy of film, using setting and dialogue that is stripped bare.
