Short film - 2018 - 12 min.
Danya grew up without his father, a famous actor. After a long time, the two see each other again, on the special family day at the summer camp where Danya stays. The boy has rehearsed a dance and is extremely nervous. But his father arrives early and is not allowed in, so they are forced to talk at the gate. The short meeting tells a lot about the brittle relationship between father and son, which is tested even further when Danya learns that yet another member has joined the family.
