Afternoon Delights

A lonely grandfather falls victim to a practical joke... but is the last laugh on him?

Afternoon Delights is a dark short comedy starring British film legend Ronald Pickup. It's sometimes sad, sometimes funny, and shows the journey of a practical joke gone wrong. Very wrong.

The 5-min film, created in less than 4 weeks from script idea to screening, and on a near-zero budget, was directed by award-winning documentary maker, director and exec producer at Contented Brothers, Christopher Ian Smith.
