Torn from the Chain

International Short Film Competition

The label of masculinity and dominance proves to be more dangerous than its manifestations. Innocent protagonists are weighed down by the burden of socially demanded masculinity, which drowns the core of their own personalities. What will happen if they revolt one day? Will they be rejected? Or will they finally find their lost soul?
