THE SLEEPING BEAST

2021
IN POSTPRODUCTION 

Jamie, a ten-year-old boy, is scared when he realizes that his mother does not wake up and struggles to hide the truth from his brothers and himself: she is dead. He believes that if he does not tell anything or leave the apartment it will be as if nothing had happened. What he does not know is what it will be Connor, only four years old, who ends the deception and leaves the next day to ask a gardener for help. The short film is inspired by a true story that took place in December 2016 in Palma.
