Filmed and edited in intimate vérité style, this movie follows visionary medical practitioners who are working on the cutting edge of life and death and are dedicated to changing our thinking about both.
Two ten year-old boys are detained by police under suspicion of abducting and murdering a toddler. A true story based on interview transcripts and records from the James Bulger case, which shocked the world in 1993.
A woman goes through her daily routine until she receives a call from her 6 year old son. What transpires as an affectionate conversation between mother and son turns into a nightmare as the reality of the situation unfolds.

A tense and gripping thriller that's all too real, this is perhaps the best short ever made.
