CGiii Comment

Be warned...this is as intense and powerful as a short film can be.

So shocking, so sad...it will remain in your thoughts for a very long time.


No trailer...

 

The(ir) Blurb...

An outwardly prosperous Czech family decided to spend a weekend in the mountains. But, as it turned out, these plans became known not only to them. Along the way, their teenage son was repeatedly subjected to violence by only one well-known blackmailer. Which made the boy ask his parents under various pretexts to stop, in order to retire, to take several photos for him.
