An elite British soldier and medic admits the accepted killing of a seriously injured comrade on the basis of triage. He documents his testimony on video in the operational area immediately after the event and wants to make this unknown aspect of the war clear to other candidates.
We started this short in 2017 with a rough idea and wrote the first draft in 2018. The script was then reduced more and more... until we thougt to have found the essence of it. We think there is no need to tell or show more than we did now. After a longer period of researching, everything was focused on a convincing situation, surrounding and acting.
That's why we created the film in two versions. A German and an English version. Subtitles would destroy the overall picture. The same reason led to the decision to make the film in one shot. Due to the fact, that the medic is a British soldier, the English version ist the "original" one.
The laurels we received so far ...
