The short film Catch is a poetic drama about a child's longing for a family. In search of a father figure, the girl takes refuge in a hunting lodge where she chooses a man for her mother. She lures him into her home, which soon after becomes his cage. The hunter becomes the prey, and the child takes the reins into his own hands until the mother returns home. The film illustrates a child’s view of the adult world in an insightful and lucid way.
