Created as part of the Shoot Em Up showcase, where storytellers, screenwriters, and filmmakers play a game of "cinematic telephone." First, storytellers share real stories from their lives. They are paired with a screenwriter who have a month to write scripts inspired by the stories. These scripts are then given to filmmakers who have one month to make a short film based off of the script and story.
In "Sweet Repose" Leslie comes home from a long day of work and just wants to get some sleep. She finally lays her head on the pillow when, to her chagrin, her loud and oblivious roommate Nichole is home with a date and they're feeling frisky. Leslie then enlists the help of her Alexa to help deal with the... loud noises.
