NARRATIVE SHORT | 14 MIN | 2010

FATHER CHRISTMAS DOESN'T COME HERE

A naïve young girl with low self-esteem wants to be as beautiful as her mother. She decides to write to Father Christmas asking for long, straight hair. Her dream is almost ruined by a cynical man who gives her a dose of reality, which makes her resort to extremes to achieve her goal. With the help of her grandmother, she finds true acceptance and identity.
