The Screen Guide

Ruth and Harold have had enough of leaf-blowers and other polluting garden tools, so they take matters into their own hands. Working at home in a 'quiet' suburb, aspiring scriptwriter Harold can't get anywhere because he's driven to distraction by the cacophony of sound made by leaf-blowers and whipper-snippers. He dreams about violently eliminating their owners but instead his mother diverts his anger into a peaceful protest. She buys a stack of brooms and hands them out to real-life leaf-blower owners. What are their reactions?
