Wind and snow bear down upon a disillusioned sniper, in a field in France, during World War II. While manning his post he contemplates his lot in life. Laying in wait for his next victim, the sounds of war slowly encroach on his position.
SaMo INDIE says:
In one uninterrupted take, this quiet World War II drama gives a cinematic and poetic portrayal of soldiers at war. The loneliness and isolation of the protagonist is elegantly rendered through the serene and expansive landscape, with a quiet narrative riding the visuals. A tranquil reflection on a tumultuous time, this short practically lets you feel the crisp air on your cheek.
