This film is an account of a 13-year-old boy's shoplifting escapade. It is narrated by a teen voice (Madeleine Sami), while adult actors act out the drama as kids. What starts out as teen shenanigans (a porn stash is accrued with a five finger discount) turns unsettling, after a beating is doled out by Dad as punishment. The contrast between the naive voice and what is seen on-screen — shot in handheld close-ups — is grimly memorable. An early short from Gregory King, this disquieting tale of domestic abuse was selected for the NZ and Melbourne Film Festivals.
