 Martin is unfit, so in an effort to reverse twenty nine years of abuse, he starts jogging.   In the first few days of his new routine he finds a route through the woods, and most mornings his journey is punctuated by little more than birdsong and his own laboured breathing.

 But this morning is different.  When he looks down into a leafy hollow and sees a man burying a girl, he does what most of us would do and panics – he runs.

  Then he makes a decision he will come to regret – and goes back.

 Martin doesn’t know it yet, but it’s the worst decision he ever made.

 It may even be his last.

 

‘Girl in the Woods’ is a 13 minute pyschological horror film shot in the UK.

Starring Tom Bennett, Robert Atiko, Aria Prassad and Hilary Greatorex, the film is due for festival release in 2012.
