This short film is about loneliness. MAN lives on his own, his wife left him and he has completely given up on life. He lives off cider and roast beef, the cider playing a part into Man becoming dependent on it. He has trapped himself in his dying world. Evaluating his life through a one act monologue, Man finds his journey just as depressing as his current world. He wants a change, but the odds seem too much against him. Can he kick the booze and turns things around or has his black hole dug too deep? Cider & Roast Beef touches on how low ones loneliness can get and if there can be a way out of what looks to be the impossible.
