HELP WANTED

ABOUT

José, a traveller from Brazil, is down on his luck and is hitchhiking through the Yorkshire Dales. On his travels, he finds a “help wanted” sign pointing towards a farm run by frail, old Paul and his disabled wife Gladys, who are having money trouble. After a couple weeks helping out on the farm, José is sadly fired by Paul and Gladys due to being incompetent at his job. As he heads off hitchhiking again, a car full of loan sharks turn up to the farm and start causing chaos. Paul and Gladys have had a troubled past and find themselves in debt to these men. José luckily sees that Paul and Gladys are in trouble and goes to help them out with a secret skill completely unrelated to the farm business, something Paul and Gladys had never anticipated. It turns out José is practised in martial arts. As a back track of their original decision, Paul and Gladys offer Jorge the job back on a more long term basis. The ‘Help Wanted’ sign previously positioned by the roadside is snapped in half, as a symbol of their gratitude.
