In this short film from director Melissa Anastasi, a neglected young girl steals from pregnant women at the local swimming pool, buying her the attention she desperately craves. Some really terrific performances here, especially from the young Clementine Bell.


Starring Marlo Kelly (Dare Me, Patricia Moore, Neighbours), Tasma Walton (Mystery Road, Cleverman, Rake), Ezekiel Simat (Lambs of God, Amazing Grace, Nine Perfect Strangers), and introducing Clementine Bell as Keira.
