Private Project


Two friends quarrel in the bar. Larry is upset with Roland’s ignorans, failing to notice his depression. A strange man in his 50s witnesses this seemingly a harmless fight. The moment the conflict escalates, he stops friends and offers them a game. The winner must shoot the loser. Ironically, Larry is allowed to kill his "oppressor". How much the trouble costs and what’s the price of a punishment? Larry will find the answers to these questions at the end of the film.
