Short Film: 9 SECONDS, 18min., USA, Action/Sci-Fi

9seconds cover

Forced to live in hiding with her father at the outskirts of a war-torn and besieged city, nine year old Anika tries her best to be a kid. Several times a day, an air-raid siren sounds, and a bomb lands somewhere in the vicinity exactly 9 seconds later, like clockwork. Overcome with curiosity for the outside world, she goes against the wishes of her father and slips out of the bunker, but wanders too far from home as chaos breaks out. She must learn to grow up quickly in order to make it back home.
