Game Over

Directed by: Paris El-Said

A young boy playing alone in the park suddenly finds himself under siege by an elite force of imaginary soldiers. He engages in a fun, manifested war game that renders him victorious over his foes. It is only after tragedy strikes close to home that his perception of war is altered forever, and the game is over.
