💡🎬 Exciting opportunity for an Assistant Director to take part in an ambitious short film project! 🎬💡

Synopsis

He recently retired and regularly goes fishing. The two brothers randomly meet in front of the boat house. They brutally fight over some unfinished family business when the worst happens. The bitter relationship between the two brothers is a metaphor for the rising social divide, tensions and clashes in our society.
