Poppies, short film from Ashley Wing and Clayton Fussell

Bill is one of many volunteers helping to raise money from his poppy display. But underneath his proud silent stance lies a broken man. A traumatic history locked deep inside, a memory dormant. The consequence and emotional effects left in the wake of war. The few are burdened with the scars so that the many may live their lives in normality, and those who bear those scars could be stood on a street corner selling poppies.
