LITTLE SECRET is a short, suspenseful drama, about a fifteen year old boy and his inner struggles. An innocent lie a son tells his mother as an excuse. Everyone has had the experience in one way or another. We’ve all covered things up. What happens when the consequences begin to snowball? With every minute that passes, it becomes harder and harder to back out of the lie and tell the truth.
This short film is inspired by a true story, which happened in April 2012 in Breclav, Czech Republic. It received wide coverage and was a media sensation. Today’s headlines quickly fade away under the never ending rush of new events. But this story deserves to be told - that we pause and look at it from different angles. In doing so, we understand better the universal themes of how human beings everywhere live their lives. Short synopsis (50 words): We've all covered things up, but what happens when the consequences begin to snowball, and every minute it becomes harder and harder to take back the lie. Little Secret is inspired by a true story that happened in April 2012 in the Czech Republic and became a national scandal.
