Storyline

What happens when a ten-year-old boy suddenly learns he has just a few hours to live? When Ben comes down with the flu, his parents call their neighbour, a retired doctor to have a look. The Doc diagnoses a mild flu. However - Ben later hears his father and Doc, talking outside his window. Doc announces that "he probably won't make it through the day." Ben does not realize that Doc is talking about his aged Golden Retriever. Unbeknownst to his parents, Ben is resigned to the fact that he has just hours to live. The film is a poignant, funny description of those hours. Written by Anonymous

fears
29 August 2018 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

A flu. Few words. And the prepair for the last step. In essence, an amusing short film. Seductive for the equilibrium to present the traits of story. Bitter. And beautiful because, more than the wrong message perceved by a ten old boy, the film is a lovely portrait of family. So, a delicate sketch of fears and the word who gives more than rest. Each gesture for the early future is, in same measure, a serious good point for this short film more than good.
