After a day that just can’t get any worse, a lonely traffic warden finds love and an unexpected friend at the supermarket checkout.


Lonely and depressed after yet another grim day in her job handing out traffic fines,
Amita heads to a deserted supermarket for some late-night comfort food. When the
self-checkout machine refuses to allow her to buy a bottle of wine it is just about the
final straw but then life takes an unexpected turn for the better.

Karen Anstee

Originally trained as a violinist at the Royal Academy of Music, Karen came to
filmmaking – via the London Film School – from an ongoing career in the music
industry, playing for major orchestras and commercial recording artists such as
Sting, Goldfrapp and Kanye West.
Since graduating with an MA in Screenwriting, Karen has written & directed a series
of award-winning short films and founded her production company, Precious Hack
Productions, which allows her the freedom to work with a likeminded team that is
truly collaborative, 50% female and diverse across disciplines.
She is currently preparing to shoot her first feature film in early 2022.
