Imagine if everyone came pre-programmed with one special talent. It would be amazingly awesome—unless, like the frustrated protagonist of scifi short Exchangers, your talent is totally useless. Next stop: the black market, where skill swaps can change lives, sometimes in very strange ways.

The script here is very funny, but really, the best part about Diarmuid O’Brien and Conor O’Toole’s Exchangers is how it embraces its lo-fi limitations with knowing glee. Never before has a pile of old MiniDiscs been so cleverly reappropriated.
