An early summer evening starts with a game. As one kid counts to three thousand, the others hide in a row of suburban gardens. Meanwhile, a young father spends the evening with someone else’s child, an old man awaits a call that will change his life, and the future of a friendship is threatened. The game ends when mosquitoes start rising from the grass. Short Cut Grass premiered at Oberhausen.
