Cough: Civil liberties are yesterday

Yarnmaker's near future sci-fi short film COUGH has played to more than 50 film festival audiences world wide.

Food shortages during a year-long pandemic force recently widowed George (Robert Coleby) to stray far from home to survive. A simple purchase of rations derails when George stumbles upon a Shopkeeper's (Christopher Sommers) secret, placing all of them in mortal jeopardy.
Find out more about COUGH.
