This short represents the moment when you cut away the family ties and what comes after: floating. The endless uncertainty, sadness and idleness. Some people say this is what to be grown up completely.

Raised by a single mother on an isolated subdivision in rural Texas, fourteen-year-old Leila's deepest connection is with her pack of rescued dogs. When her beloved pit bull is stolen by an aspiring dog fighter, Leila is forced to stand up for herself, at the cost of her own innocence.


Coming of age starts when our idols fail. And when we realize that our father is not God, not even close to that. From that point one stands on their own feet, just like the skier who has been taken the poles and now has to go down the hill all alone. Matthias is an eight year old boy, the youngest child in the Wander family. He's looking forward to the excitement of the family getting together for the engagement of his eldest sister. This is the big moment of Mary-Ann's life. However, it might well be that behind the scenes of happy tears the other family members have their own big moments too... about those moments no one will ever talk about.
