SHORTS IN COMPETITION: NARRATIVE

HESITATION

Directed by Virginia Gilbert
SHORT NARRATIVE 16 Minutes New York Premiere
FILM GUIDE HESITATION

It is the perfect vacation for middle-aged couple Paul and Rebecca: a beautiful sun-drenched resort where they can relax all day by the pool, reading, sunning, and swimming. When a spirited French boy tears his way through the picture-perfect scene, oblivious to the noise and disruption his games and childish antics cause, he becomes the focus of Paul's irrational, ever-increasing irritation. But at a crucial moment, Paul hesitates between what he should do and what he wants to do, and the repercussions may last a lifetime.
