A chance encounter might end up being life-changing for two men.


After agreing to purchase illegal drugs for a friend, Lewis (Blessie), a homosexual, nervously arrives at the arranged location. Initially, things go as planned, with the drugs being bought, then Lewis calls for a taxi and the drug dealer (Ryan) invites him to wait inside his property. The two of them go to the balcony for a smoke and a chat and end up taking an interest in each other's appearance.


With his first short film, Blessie tells a story about two individuals who meet under unusual circumstances and develop a rapport. The vast majority of the narrative revolves around the conversation that the two young individuals have on the balcony. At first there does not seem to be a connection between them, then, (through the dealer's initiation) things get friendlier between them, they begin to flirt with each other and it is strongly indicated that they like each other and that a romantic relationship might be beginning.


Blessie's character is a gay man who finds himself in a situation he does not want to be in. Yet, as he gets more comfortable with the dealer, he starts to realise that he might have found a special person. Self-discovery is one of the themes that are explored in this film and Ryan's character seems to be the one who experiences that, as his encounter with Lewis appears to make him realise that he is a homosexual himself.


The film's title is a saying that involves one accepting changes in their life and that is partially what this short drama is about: change. It is also a story about romance, self-discovery and about meeting someone new. The acting is good and the screenplay is well-written and the viewing experience provides a dramatic and intriguing story.
