A silent romantic short film, telling the tale of a young couple's Valentine's Day viewed from the perspective of two teddy bears; Martha and Maverick. The bears are the centrepiece of the couple's Valentine's celebrations until a suspicious text threatens to tear them apart. The two bears are thrown into the middle of a conflict between a couple who, unlike the bears themselves, simply weren't made for each other.

Unbearable was created by Darkwood Films as part of the the 50 Kisses initiative in association with the London Screenwriters Festival and went on to screen at the Staffordshire Film Festival 2013 where it was nominated for the Best UK Filmmaker award. Watch the promo for 50 Kisses below:
