Two and a Half Minutes - Colin McCredie - drama short film - Scottish short

Two and a Half Minutes is the latest drama short film from Silly Wee Films, following on from "Night is Day: Dusk" and "Bottle".

Starring John Gaffney, who plays DCI Sloan in "Night is Day" and Colin McCredie, who is best known as DI Stuart Fraser on STV's long running drama series "Taggart", the story focuses on Alex, a hard working family man working at a large company ran by Mr. Wober (Tam Toye).

Alex is dissapointed when Bruce (Colin McCredie), the relatively new boy at the company, who he helped rise through the ranks, is put up for a lucrative promotion. However Alex discovers at the morning meeting that he is up for the same promotion.

After a brief heart to heart with Bruce, Alex leaves to meet his wife, when he meets the mysterious Nicholas (Chris Summers), who offers him a chance to secure his promotion. But how far will Alex go to get the promotion?
