How far would you go to survive? To keep you and your best friend alive and safe? Short film Grace by director Karen Nielson challenges these questions and shows it doesn’t matter how old you are everyone has survival instincts and will do anything to keep alive and on top.
After all the cities in the world have been destroyed by nuclear bombs,the world is a massif nothingness and the survivors have nothing and no one to help them. One survivor, a young 10 year old girl, Grace is on the search for food with her best friend and dog. In this world that has turned apocalyptic, it’s not just about food but also about trust. As it has been a year, Grace and her dog have been able survive and have done many things to do so. One night a lone stranger falls upon Grace’s camp. He is weak and hungry. Grace must make a careful decision to let this stranger in or keep him at arms length no matter what she must do. It’s a very well executed short and should be one on your list to see in the near future. Compelling and captivating performances is what makes Grace stand out.
