Sitting on Elle's bed day in, day out, Pillow has come to know her and her habits better than the inside of his own pillowcase. He sees her at her best, he sees her at her worst, and he also looks on as she makes her way through her extensive DVD collection. Pillow learns most of what he knows of human life through tales told largely by Hugh Grant and Colin Firth - even if he still isn't quite sure what this "love" is...


2. Prize











Cassie Galpin(Prod. Coord.) George McDonagh(Dir.)

It’s a two sided story: Bry the embryo, has been through this before and just tells it as it is, and BBHope45 who desperately wants to meet and raise him.
