wild game

Fifteen-year-old Liis has a bad feeling about joining other teenagers for a hunting trip in the woods, but she is pressured into going along, most of all by a boy to whom she is not completely indifferent. The translucently photographed short by Jeronimo Sarmiento confirms her misgivings, but  also suggests that she will never again be bullied into anything.
