It's a hard life being an misunderstood genius - I really should get out more.
From the collection of:
A tongue in cheek look at the life of a 1960s student in a dingy bed-sit, yearning for more fun and social interaction. Shot around the Liverpool University campus and surrounding streets, this quirky and often surreal short film plays with the traditional student preoccupations of grotty housing, unrequited passions, and the unfairness of being a misunderstood genius in an uncaring world.
