ALT | International Shorts

On a country road, a reporter - racing to cover an accident where a man hit a dog - hits a dog and finds himself trapped in a sensational story even he could not concoct. There is a stark, surreal atmosphere to this black and twisted tale that slowly reveals a conspiracy that will stop at nothing in the name of protection. An original storyline and fine direction keeps the tension taut and the shot compositions interesting. There are no deep moral messages here - even the ouroboros-like plot is just a summation of a wild ride and how, in rural areas anywhere, outsiders can run into a whole different kind of law and order.
