Synopsis

Mirko is self-conscious about wearing glasses in front of a girl he likes at school, but without them he can't write his class test. Will he risk being seen in his specs, or will he have to hand in a blank page? What a dilemma! This endearing short aptly investigates the inner world of a youngster, where fears, mental projections, and lack of self-esteem can grow out of proportion and turn a very simple act into a huge, larger than life obstacle.
