In this black comedy we follow Naima, a lacklustre bookies assistant, whose life is a Jenga set of problems waiting to fall. But what will be the trigger? Her maniac boss, her over demanding mother or the secret she is desperately trying to hide? With personal issues outside of work mounting, a severe health scare that will reveal her illness to everyone is imminent.
This short film was one of five commissions for Sky Arts Unearthed Narratives, a strand aimed to nurture talent from Black and other diverse backgrounds.
