Short Film



36 hours in the life of a little boy who has to grow up too fast and too soon. Marc and his six year old brother, Daniel, live in a world of reversed parent-child roles. Their mother, Sylvia, is an alcoholic and unable to carry out any of her responsibilities. Their father, Michael, avoids dealing with the situation by spending as little time at home as possible. Marc tries to take on the functions of both parents in order to keep his family from completely unraveling.
