A short film by Gunilla Leander 2013

This film is built up on sounds. It is about obtaining power and control by means of violence, and the consequences of this.

The story; A group of young men attacks a defenseless guy. First they humiliate him and then they beat him down. The guy is a friendly, non-violent person, but the attack induces aggressive emotions.

We will not see the actual attack, only hear it, and we have to use our "inner film screen" to see what happens. Then we follow the guy's reactions to what happened.
