Closing Film

David is an Endo Bank employee and would-be manga author/ artist. He does as little work as he can get away with.  There’s his novel to finish for a competition deadline!   But his cushy job is under threat. Endo Bank is severely underperforming. The CEO is dumped and scheming Guy Curry gets the gig.  He brings in mysterious HR guru Max Menkoff. And his Method. Good idea, except Menkoff comes with a few issues – like two thugs, a KGB background and an assassin who’s after him. Today, things start to go wrong. His unfinished novel is nicked. Then a crazed ex-employee and his shotgun turn up. Unexpectedly brave, David disarms him. To celebrate, workmate Gary takes him out for drinks and a karaoke night.  David spots the love of his life (Ruby). A very weird love story.
