A teenage girl gets ready to go out to meet her boyfriend, despite her mother’s disapproval of her clothes. She goes out to a deserted area with him and he begins to touch her up and have sex with her. However, a stray dog reveals the true nature of her boyfriend.
In Andrea Arnold’s provocative short, the innocence of teenage girlhood is shockingly extinguished by male cruelty and financial hardship. Shot on location in a rundown council estate, the film is a blistering prelude to the emotional volatility that would emerge in her full-length features.
