Frail  Switzerland / 2015 / 18 mins

For Ruben every day is just like the other. Shielded from the outside world, he lives with his father Gabriel in a forest house on the outskirts of a village. He spends his life in a trance-like state, orchestrated by his father‘s strict rules. He is only allowed to play with his puppet, while his dad spends most of his time in his workshop. One morning looking out of the window, for the first time Ruben sees some village children playing and suddenly experiences a strange feeling. He starts questioning and distrusting his father. He decides to find out what exactly his father is doing every day in the forbidden workshop.
