The Attendant - short film

Starring Robert James-Collier (Downton Abbey) and Isy Suttie (Peep Show), The Attendant tells the story of Alex, a hapless and hopeless romantic, who has worked the graveyard shift of an isolated petrol station for longer than he cares to remember.

The time spent on his own, away from meaningful interaction, has allowed Alex to create a fantasy world. In the early hours, as Alex readies himself to embark on another flight of fancy, a customer appears at the window who might just change his world forever.
