Dark Horse

Daniel is constantly on the run from parking tickets, overdue bills and – the police. And yet he still manages to lead a carefree life. Until he meets and falls in love with the equally irresponsible and charming, Fran, that is. Suddenly he finds he has to make a very grown up choice.

Dark Horse is also a film about the ubiquitous triangle. Daniel’s best friend, Grandad, is a chubby 28 year old nerd, who would rather spy on girls from afar than approach them. He has been in love with Fran since the very first time he laid eyes on her. And now his best friend is dating her.
