The hand that rocks the cradle rules the world. But Zoe wants to rock, leaving her kids unattended.
Short Cut is among India's premiere film clubs for short films and documentaries. Women In Cinema, a collection of short films and documentaries directed by the women directors, is the theme for this month's screening.
This film is about a woman called Zoe. She has four kids, and she is only 23 years old. Wasp is the story of a day when Zoe is broke, and her kids are hungry. An old flame passes by, and offers her a temporary release from the misery she has heaped upon herself. She lies about being single, and leaves her kids stranded outside the pub. Nearby, in the late summer, wasps are hunting for food around an old rubbish bin.
