An Independent Drama short film that follows the story of a family after an intense night outside their home involving vandals.
  • Directed by Debora Tamay
  • Written by Debora Tamay & Jaz Sebastian


A successful man's desire for perfection leads to a confrontation with a criminal teenager, with unexpected consequences that turn both of their lives upside down. As the man grapples with the repercussions of his actions, he is forced to confront the fragility of his own illusions and the true cost of his ambition, whilst the teenager is forced to reflect upon his life of recklessness. "Infinitely More Important" is a film that explores redemption and power dynamics.


David Timberland, a corporate man, has it all in the eyes of society: a job, a wife and young baby, a new house, and financial success. At face value, he possesses all of the things that make him a successful man, but deep down, he is bitter, arrogant, grandiose, and embodies superiority. Upon receiving a trophy for achieving an incredible feat in his corporate career, he has a chance encounter with Spencer Mills, a thug teenager that is seen by society as the bottom of the barrel. As an addict, violent, purposeless teenager, Spencer is caught in a life of destruction, surrounded by negative influences. David, unable to control his anger confronts the arrogant teenager, leading to a series of events that will change both of their lives for better or worse.
