In Competition

Cleverly shot at waist height so we never see the characters’ faces, this film aims to see life from the point of view of a naïve little girl, while playing with her doll’s house. The girl accidentally reveals to her father a not-so innocent secret that makes him realise he should be more attentive in raising his child.
