James Smith watches love manifest between different couples as he sits alone in Jamie Thraves's video for Rely On Me. 

Smith is a lone diner in a trendy restaurant, reflecting on his solitude while we get small glimpses and snapshots of the other diners, juxtaposing his isolation with their acts of love and kindness. 

Shot by Ian Murray, the lighting and composition are simple but very effective, and the performance from Smith is powerful and emotive.
