Kristoffer Kiørboe, Denmark, 2014

20 min.DK/Short fiction

A coming of age short film about 13 year old August. His mother is devastated by the recent divorce from the father, and refuses to let August keep the puppy his father gave him for his birthday. It hurts August to see his mother in pain and he feels responsible for her, but he loves the puppy nearly as much as he misses his father. He decides to take the puppy and move in with his father and his new family, but August's illusions are soon to be shattered. "Son" is a drama about ordinary life. August loses his childhood innocence and the world he once knew changes radically, just like he does himself.
