Synopsis

When she is caught cheating on an exam, Jana is sent to detention, where she encounters a cruel bird that taunts her mercilessly. The schoolgirl goes to extreme lengths to silence the creature (and cover up the messy aftermath), but it keeps coming back to pick on her insecurities. Using a mix of live-action and animation, this stylish dark comedy shows us what happens when we act on our dangerous impulses.
