SYNOPSIS: Struggle for survival can push people to cross the boundaries of human nature. This is the concept the director proposes in this short film without any dialogue, but with a high expressive significance. The story unfolds around a hunting trip, during which a father of a poor family is murdered. The family live on the far end of the woods, far away from urban civilization. This liminal location becomes the cause triggering bestial violence. The daughter stands up to take control of the situation. Marvellous model of feminine resolution, she leads a punitive expedition ending in tragedy. The strength of the woman is reinforced, together with the bitterness caused by the premature loss of childhood innocence caused by hunger and despair.
