Kasper Syhler, Denmark, 1999

4 min.DK/Short fiction

One night, down by the Langelinie wharf, an old sailor is sitting with his
sweetheart, the Little Mermaid. As he is busy enjoying the company of
the mermaid, his home-rolled smokes and a few strong beers, he suddenly gets caught in a religious crossfire between Moses, the Three Wise Men and God. Here the sailor is faced with a brutal fact that he is not happy about confronting.
