A Mutual Friend: The Secret Life Of John Ebneigh

Synopsis

Explores a dark and fragile world of adult-hood in cosmopolitan London. Set in the year 2006. John and Francis have been friends since college, seven years ago. Everything they do has become repetitive and uneventful, unwilling to ever take any risks to improve themselves.

Without his best friend to comfort John, during the worst year of his chronic depression. He begins to depend more and more on his secret night-time hobby, taking intimate photos of Mandy Thompson a former college student and John’s first love.
