Danas je takozvana “najluđa noć” u godini. Neki odluče doček godine proslaviti na najbolji i najluđi način, a nekima je to noć kao i svaka druga. Kako god da ju odlučite provesti, nemojte “završiti” kao likovi ovog filma. Niskobudžetne krimi drame snimljene u ko-produkciji Velike Britanije i Irske u režiji redatelja i ko-scenarista Kierona J. Walsha. Jump je radnjom smješten u novogodišnju noć, te prati Gretu, kćer narko bosa koju nepoznati mladić spasi od samoubojstva. Taj događaj, ali i ta cijela noć prepuna opasnih događaja im oboje u potpunosti promjeni život. Budžet filma iznosi oko 1,3 milijuna £, a u glavnim ulogama se pojavljuju Nichola Burley i Martin McCann. Britanska premijera filma se održala 08. lipnja 2012. na Belfast Film Festivalu, a Jump je prikazan i u Kanadi na Toronto International Film Festivalu.
JUMP follows the lives of four twenty-something’s whose lives collide one fateful New Year’s Eve in a night of fast talk, accidents and intrigue. The unseen yet crucial occurrence of this tale is the strange disappearance of Eddie Kelly, which hangs over the city like a dark cloud. Kelly’s ‘disappearance’ at the hands of crime boss Frank Feeney’s men links our four main characters, triggering a sequence of events which ultimately has life changing consequences for each of them.
Feeney’s daughter Greta is severely depressed and is intent on taking her own life. Pearse is on a mission to avenge his brother Eddie’s murder. Johnny, a small time crook who works for Feeney, and Marie, a frustrated shop assistant, are both looking for a fresh start.
Greta and Pearse meet each other in extraordinary circumstances on a bridge overlooking the city. Greta is there to jump and Pearse has been beaten and dangled off the bridge by Feeney’s henchmen for asking difficult questions about his brother’s disappearance. In their short, magnetic time together they become kindred spirits on the cusp of love before fate and circumstance take over.
A wayward corpse and the busy intrigue of New Year’s Eve all compose the jigsaw puzzle of this out of sequence, multi-stranded story. And as the night’s events expertly fall into place, JUMP weaves an existential portrait of our characters’ lives as their hopes, fears and secrets are revealed.
