With pressure to keep quiet about a friend’s indiscretion, a boy is forced to deal with his secret head-on as the victim’s sister walks into his shop.

Written and directed by Nano Clow, “Guts” was written as a proof of concept for a feature film and adapted to be self-contained as a short. Clow says, “We shot it on a shoe-string budget and favours over the course of an extra-long, 25 hour day. The two locations were an hour apart and since the bulk of the shooting had to be through the night while businesses were closed, we built two completely different crews so that only the director, producer, DP, and lead actor worked the entire, long night.”

The film premiered at Vancouver International Film Festival and went on to travel North America on the film circuit.
