More on projectHide project details

Sarah and Martin are looking for someone to occupy their vacant spare room. But the process is draining, dull, long and seemingly painful. Nobody seems to fit. The scenes play out in a comedic sequence with humour injected in every interaction and their reactions to the quirky, eccentric and unusual characters that show up, all the while finding words to put down on their scrabble board which seems to sum up each experience nicely.
