Russia, 2015, 20 Min

A couple, together with six-year-old son Kyrill, travels to the Baltic Sea coast to meet friends for a picnic. During the journey the youngster is engrossed in the computer games on his tablet. Having arrived a seemingly idyllic atmosphere reigns, first appearances can be deceptive however.

Whilst the adults animatedly exchange opinions on how to best raise a child, the effects of computer games on brain development and the positive influence of studying music, Kyrill wanders through the forest. There he experiences phenomena, the existence of which his parents refuse to believe; instead they are convinced that their child needs to see a psychologist.

A story full of black humour and surprising turns on children whose imagination needn't always be out of touch with reality, and parents whose understanding of the world we live in is often desperately outdated. MM
