International Shorts 1: Trapped
How do we feel stuck? Let me count the ways…
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.
Anita, a live-in maid, decides one day to run away in search of a better life. She gets on a Mumbai city bus and meets a stranger.
