A compelling, thought-provoking short film based on a true story. Remarkably performed and well-directed, one of those valuable films that has potential to trigger relevant social debates.


Matyi is a 7-year old boy who loves to play hide and seek, but knows no boundaries. He is constantly hiding somewhere, annoying his parents and refusing to come out even when the whole family is looking for him. He is the smallest, unplanned member of a large family and just another pain to his mother suffering from extreme poverty and her husband’s drinking addiction. However, the father is very fond of the boy and the only one with sufficient patience. One day, the father disappears and the mother is left alone with an undisciplined child.
