Always let the other person speak first

When a high powered career woman is asked on a romantic date by her boyfriend, she decides to end their relationship there and then. Not content to let her man down gently, she goes in all guns blazing, prepared even to vent her spleen, but is she really prepared for the outcome?

Lucky Escape is a four-minute short, which was written, produced, and directed by Shane McCabe, and shot in one day on location in Rathfarnham Village, Dublin. Although shot in Dublin with an all-Irish cast and crew, the movie sets out to explore a universal theme.

Featuring Vanessa Keogh (Veronica Guerin, The Clinic, Fair City, The Tudors) and José Mantero (Bitterness, Fair City, Hooligans, 3 Crosses, WC), the movie sets out to examine the age old saying that we should always look before we leap. It aims to tell a simple tale, using a three act structure, making the audience believe one thing at the start of the film, but see the complete opposite by the end.
