‘A Shut In Place’ is a sobering dramatisation of the last few hours of a heroin addict, Jesse (Benn Robert McHugh).
The poem (untitled at time of writing) that can be heard during the film was written and spoken by Jack Dickens (www.jackwdickens.wordpress.com / @DickensianJack)
/// My friend and flatmate Sam Kay’s (@SKay1008) competition-winning short film ‘A Shut In Place’. I was given the honour of writing a poem to accompany the film. I am also the voice that was recorded reading the poem aloud, as can be heard on the film. ///
