Director: Damian Marcano
2011, Trinidad+Tobago / USA
Dramatic short / 11 minutes
Richard, a 10-year-old boy who lives with his grandparents, has an attachment to his football as if it were his best friend. As time progresses, the ball develops blemishes and scratches as a result of their activities together. The lesson learned is simple: a friend is a friend no matter the person—or thing.
