A soldier trying to flee the battlefield finds himself stuck on a mountain slope by sniper fire. Hidden behind his small shelter, the soldier realizes he is an easy target and, unable to locate the sniper's position, decides to wait for the night to try to escape. Yet even this is not enough to distract the relentless sniper. The warmth of a memory will help the soldier survive the long, cold night on the mountain.

Director Statement

Sugarless is the first single by Millais Flower Honey, a young indie-pop band from Turin, fourth placed in the "Pagella Non Solo Rock 2021". Incubo Film Productions is the name of a fictional production house behind which are hidden three cinema students from Turin University. This music video is a zero budget product involving no professional actors.

The three flowers that appear in the video represent the symbol of the band Millais Flower Honey: a pink poppy, some forget-me-nots and violets.
