Why Can't We Have Nice Things?

At midnight two mercurial brothers reunite in the family restaurant and pick up where they left off a year ago - at each other's throats. Between taxis and baseball bats, coffee cups and BB guns, the brothers try to make it through the night.

Director Biography - Hano Lokman

In 2021 COVID destroyed my clothing business so I used the rest of my savings to buy a camera, move to Melbourne, and begin writing, shooting, acting in, editing and posting micro-budgeted mini films across social media, circa July, 2021. Since then I’ve accumulated over 200,000 followers and as a result of this success have decided to take the next step and create my premiere short film. I'm self-taught. Everything I've learnt about writing and Cinema, I've learnt by watching Cinema.
