Shoot Your Shot.

Shoot Your Shot is a short film about teenage best friends Ronit and Brennan, as they struggle to reach the same emotional support page on a scorching afternoon in the summer. Ronit’s got an aching crush for Mike and doesn’t know if it’s too late, and Brennan is baffled by that fuzzy feeling all together. A coming-of-age story about masculinity between immigrants. It’s intimate, it’s a little out of their comfort zones, but inevitably, it ends in love.


Mishaal is a writer-director with a passion for telling stories that are injected with creativity and a new perspective on the world and how we see it, with a particular emphasis on South-Asian representation.
