A guy is looking after his baby and it refuses to stop crying and never sleeps. After a while the baby stops crying and when he goes to find out why he finds the baby has been stolen and he has to run all over town, against a deadline, to find her but always arrives too late.

Nothing as boundary pushing as kill therapist but not bad either.

Charming, funny and entertaining. This film was quite cute but with a level of black comedy. Nicely shot and with some originality which is nice to see the competition. However the ending seemed all too sudden.

A entertaining and stylistically unique film about a new father struggling as a solo parent with a baby that just won't sleep. A reasonably unexpected twist sees the father in a race against time. Various electronic communications are communicated beautifully and clearly. Quite a departure from some of the team's previous films.

Well edited and shot, and a great use of those chat pop-up screens. I liked the way you shot repetitiveness and passing time, though that sequence of him sleeping on the bed was unnecessary. Also the ending cutaway was just way too quick to register what had happened before it cut to the last shot. But it was a clever way to end the film.
