I’m a student from Ravensbourne University. We are making a five minute short film about a story of revenge, where a man past decision comes back to haunt him.

Synopsis:
A homeless man finds a wallet full of money in a small suburban street in London. He recognizes the owner as someone he worked for before he ended up on the streets. He returns the wallet to the rightful owner. The businessman who is surprised that someone would return his wallet, full of fifty-pound notes. He believes, wrongly, that giving money to the homeless means they’ll just waste it on drink and drugs.

As an alternative to a financial reward he offers him some of the food he has just cooked. During the meal the homeless man reveals himself as one of the businessman ex-employees, and proceeds to tell him how his life has spiralled out of control due to the businessman’s actions. The businessman in shock swallows hard and starts to choke on the food he has made. He gestures to the homeless man to help him, but he does not. The homeless man watches silently as he finally gets the revenge he has been imagining for years.
