Distance (2012)

Original title (in Estonian): "Distants"

Students film | Drama Duration 24:24

On a misty sea drifts a lonely boat. While unseen danger lurks in the fog, the boat's motor is out of order and visibility is as clear as the relationship between the two men sitting in the boat. Do they get out of the mist? Or is it already too late?
