The World Turns is an atmospheric journey into guilt and the expectation of consequences to a man's actions. It runs for just under 20 minutes and stars actor Ricci Harnett (28 Days Later, Stained) and Frances Albery.

"In making this film i tried to asks questions but wanted to offer no answers. It was important for the characters to be believable yet unpredictable in there actions within a narrative that could be easily followed yet open and unresolved." - Nick Ray Rutter.

Short fact:

We got three cars clamped in one day that put the budget up nearly 10%... that meant the director only bought the crew one drink at the wrap party.
