As our Bachelor Degree graduate film, Sidekick FIlms entailed to work on a dark, complex piece, to push boundaries in comfortable story telling. 'Smothered' is the chilling story of Leo, an under appreciated supermarket manager, overwhelmed son and inferior boyfriend. As he tries to balance the unbalances in his life and everyone's around him, his mental state begins to escape in dreams whilst his real life situation unravels in a nightmare.
