STORY

“Poison” tells the tale of Tony, a drug chemist and poison specialist working for a small criminal organization. Unsettled by dreams of a lost love, he finds himself with regret for his crimes. But when a job up north turns sour and guns get drawn, will he survive to return to his old life?

Written by Christopher Jayawardena, this was the third short film based on Downcast, made to give further backstory to Rollyn Stafford’s supporting performance in the feature.
