"You seem 'life' sad, like you've been sad for a long time... the kind of sadness which learns to live with itself."
Set over the course of a single night, Night Owls is the story of two lost souls coming together. When teenage runaway Mari breaks into the house of reclusive thirty-something Kent, they discover that they have a mutual disdain for their lives, and build the type of unlikely friendship they both sorely needed.
Originally written as a feature script by Sophie Black, she brought award-winning screenwriter Tommy Draper on board to collaborate on the script for Night Owls. It was shot in Chesterfield in May 2014, and is now in post-production.
