Children Watching Night Trains (19 min) deals with the revolt of two young people, which stems from the feeling of misunderstanding, absence of relationships and communication.

Tambylles (58 min) An eighteen-year-old delinquent was recently released from a juvenile detention center. He returns to his parent's old home with a clean criminal record and a new identity. However, local villagers sense an injustice in this lack of punishment; they remember what happened there just a few years earlier. Also an ambitious filmmaker has decided to follow and document this delinquent's return to a ‘normal' life. With the backdrop of contemporary society, where "everything is meaningless and nothing is real", this story of maturity and guilt unfolds.
