Making it’s UK Premiere at Manchester International Film Festival, see PETER MACQUEEN in UPPER AIR a new short by Theodore Simmons, part of the North West Shorts collection screening Tues 15th March from 5.40pm.

It’s the end of the summer when Ethan and Sam head into the English Lake District for the weekend looking for some quiet time together. On arrival, they encounter Isaac – an eccentric elderly resident who has made their bothy of choice his temporary home. Over the course of the day they must navigate this unexpected third-wheel’s quirks while discovering more about his unusual circumstances.

By nightfall, a rapport has formed between the three unlikely bunk-mates, one that puts them in an odd position when, in the early hours of Sunday morning, Isaac’s family comes knocking.
