Award-winning short film in which shrill violin music and ominous images set the tone for an alienating and awkward intrigue. What is the purpose of the conversation that two parents have with officials in an ice-cold meeting room? Why is their three-year-old daughter's stuff at home packed in boxes and burnt in the garden? Slowly but surely, the horrible truth of their decision is revealed.
