My Friend, Marcel

by William Soffe, The Northern Film School

In the midst of a national lockdown, Frank Dennison makes a new friend within the confines of his own home. This new friend, Marcel, helps Frank cook, work, and provides company when he most needs it. However, as Marcel’s behaviour begins to sour, Frank must choose between leaving his friend, or getting trapped within his own psyche forever.
