International Shorts 1: Trapped

  • 87 mins

How do we feel stuck? Let me count the ways…

A live-in maid on the run in Mumbai, a woman confined to her husband’s sick bed, a man locked in his own flat, an Alzheimer’s sufferer trapped in her own confused mind and a little boy accidentally left inside his school after an evacuation... From the US, China, Ireland, Canada and Australia comes a fine selection of shorts providing thought-provoking and beautifully observed variations on the theme of being trapped.
