Comp Short #2: “Poem in the Key of Freedom minor“, by Nathalie Tafelmacher-Magnat
Synopsis: Lori ekes out a life in a sparsely furnished room which leaves her in isolation, were it not for her neighbour, her partner in platonic eroticism. Loosing her TV out the window seems to be the last desirable thing to happen to her, given her circumstances, but it turns out to be the key… to a little bit more freedom.
