The Flood

short fiction, 15′, 2019
directed by Kristijan Krajnčan

Following his father’s year-long absence, the son attempts to reconcile with him on a solitary trip to their family mountain hut. The harder he tries, the more distant his father becomes. When a sunny day is suddenly disrupted by heavy rain, the son fears the weather might be connected to his father. Will he manage to see the truth before the flood reaches them?
