Padlock

2016, 15 minutes

A short film about domestic abuse against men.

Matt wakes. A morning like any other. He enters the bathroom. The padlock hangs on the cabinet. He inspects it. Has it moved? Has it been tampered with? Only Julie has the key. He's safe. For now at least. Julie has a busy day at work. Matt prepares her favourite meal. A knock on the door. A surprise visit from his sister. This is out of his routine. A broken routine usually has consequences. She has good news but he is preoccupied. He must remove all traces of her visit. Julie returns. Sensing something is wrong. Removing the key, opening the padlock and releasing the horrific secret kept inside.
