[Video] This Tongue-in-Cheek Short Film Imagines a World Without Bum Guns

Empty toilet paper holder, not a single tissue or scrap of useless paper in your pocket and no one else in the bathroom to head your calls for help: its a nightmare we all understand. 

This comedic short, It's All in Our Hands, by Saigon-based Soul Catcher Productions lets viewers squirm in the agonizing experience before giving way to a humorous, inspiring ending. 

The group of young independent filmmakers produced it as part of the 48-hour film competition. Each team had to select their genre at random and include a specified character, line and prop and complete their film within two days. It's All in Our Hands belongs to the coming-of-age genre and seamlessly sneaked in the required dog walker, a loaf of bread and the utterance, "Because I believe I am right!" For their efforts, the team won the award given by the audience for best director, and snagged nominations for Best Screenplay and Best Use of Required Line.
