Hayley Robertson picked up Best Actress at Kiwi short film festival Tropfest for her role as a mysterious young woman in this thoughtful short drama set in a bus stop, somewhere in rural New Zealand. In gumboots and flannel shirt, her character arrives at the stop to find a confident well-dressed young law student, turning over a $20 bill in his hand. Passing time while waiting, she challenges him to a game; the playing of which slowly reveals their differing approaches to life, and the ourcome leads to the film’s shocking conclusion. Director Nick Garrett also composed the score.
