Genre: Drama, Short
10 min

I'm afraid it would be hard

for me to prove the superiority

of Western civilization

to an Afghan villager who's

watching TV with me.

I'm afraid to be invited

unexpectedly some day

at friends of friends

and get served fat white

crawling maggots

or fried flying locusts

or baked snake with sauce.

The pain... wakes me up.

It's almost time...

for my medication.

It's... day.

Another day.

It seems cold outside.

Cold and grey.

When I was little, I thought

it was always cold.

We lived in the North,

in the countryside.

There wasn't a living soul to

be found for miles around.

Because I was all alone,

I had to find diversion.

I went to explore the forest.

I was looking for interesting

animals and plants.

And insects.

I was fascinated by insects.

Mom prohibited me to bring my

specimen home.

She found them dirty and disgusting.

Eric, is that you?

Dinner's almost ready!

Yes, mom. I'm coming!

Even though she hated my

collection of insects,

she still encouraged my interest

in science

and let me set up a corner

in my room.

My lab.

That was my refuge.

There I spend hours and hours


and studying my specimen.

Eric, come here! Come here!

I'm coming, mom!

Without knowing why,

I hid the goblet under my bed.


I probably didn't want my

mother to find it.

After dinner I hurried to my room.

But it was gone.

I looked everywhere, but my

little specimen wasn't to be found.

In the end I gave up.

It was hard to forget.

For years I often heard the

same noise.

Something crawling and itching.

At the back of my bed.

I took the bed with me when I

left for college.

I found a small apartment just for me

close to the campus.

I didn't want a room mate

who would distract me.

All I needed,

was a nice quiet place to work.

After all those years in seclusion

I found it difficult to meet people,

especially girls.

Look at that d*ckhead!

- Hey you! What's your problem?

You want my photo?

You won't see me for a long time!

They were pretty and charming.

But it was impossible to get

in touch with them.

Excuse me.

That's why I was so surprised

when Laura entered my life.

I don't want to disturb you, but... you're

taking biology with Schermann, don't you?

Eh... yes... I... I...

I've seen you there.

You always look so serious.

You have your nose in a book

and you're taking notes all the time.

I've missed the last lesson.

Can I borrow your notes?

Eh yes. Of course. Here... they are.

You'll get them back soon, OK?

By the way, my name is Laura.

Eh... uhm... Eric. I'm Eric.

Thanks, Eric. I have to go.

Hello, Laura? It's Eric. Ah... no.

Not too fast, not too fast.

Laura? It's Eric.

From the biology class...

No... no.

What am I doing?


- Laura? It's Eric...

Eric from the biology class.

- Hello, Eric!

Hey, your notes are great!

Do you want them back already?

Actually I wanted...

Do you want to go to the cinema or...

To the cinema? OK! Cool!

Really? Are you sure?

- Of course I'm sure.

At what time does the movie start?

Do you get it now?

- What?

That you're mine... just mine!

O, Jack... yes... Yes!

- Yeah, that's right.

You're all mine!

- Oh, Jack! What are you doing?


- Oh, no!

Leave me be. Leave me be!

I wasn't really watching the film...

...sitting there next to Laura...

...was enough to make me happy.

Oh, no!

- Yes!


I think the movie was great!

Very moving and romantic.

It should be like that

in real life too.

Are we getting a drink?

Yummy! Vodka always gives me

a strange feeling!

She was giving me a strange feeling.

When she wanted to kiss me,
