Pretty Swift from katie oscar on Vimeo.

Based on Aimee Bender's short story:
"The Girl in the Flammable Skirt"

The nameless protagonist has a father in a wheel chair and a boy locked in her attic.

One night she finds her dad attempting to lift a backpack full of stones.
she takes it from him and he tells her than now she cannot put it down.
"this backpack has to be worn. thats the law."

One day, while she is feeding the boy in closet as usual, he grabs her hand, pulls her into the closet and kisses her.
