A tussle breaks out that ends in Janet landing a hard slap on the drunk’s face. Tom gives him cab fare to get to the airport. Janet and Tom then face off with each other.

Director's Statement

It’s a story that a lot people don’t know – that alcoholics sometimes travel long distances in blackouts, and find themselves in another state or country with no idea how they got there. It’s very real. Some people think it’s funny. Others recognize the danger of it.

Director's Bio

Neal Hemphill loves working with actors, and with cinematographers! This is his 6th short film to play in the Reel Recovery Film Festival. As an actor, he performed on stage in 33 states and 3 foreign countries, as well as in Hollywood films, national TV, and independent films. A turn to screenwriting led to also studying directing and producing. Draft #3 of a feature film is in the works.
