Before GB was famous

Prior to bellowing ‘Tonight, we dine in hell!” in 300 with his gravelly voice, Gerard Butler was just a struggling actor trying to make ends meet. Fast forward ten years and this short film still takes my breath away!

Peter is a novelist who is going out of his mind because his wife and daughter have left him. He’s bought a Smith & Wesson and put one bullet in it. Please note: though short, this film packs a punch and is not for the faint of hearts.
