Cog, a short film written & directed by Alex Chartonas, produced by LifeOfFilm Productions
A different sunrise and some unexpected news come to shake Nick, a 35 year old man. Everything in his office stays unchanged, the view out of the window looks the same, but he no longer belongs there. He just found out that he’s fired. Young and secured till yesterday, but now unemployed and alone in a system that hemorrhages due to the economic crisis, Nick is constantly trying to find his next job. The doors close behind him one by one, his daily expenses and debts never stop running and the eviction comes to cast away any last hope that was left in his soul. Homeless and helpless, in a society that considered him useful few months ago, Nick has to survive in an everyday reality that seemed so far away.
What are the limits of a human being though, for how long can he hope?
