Growth

short

Growth is about a family that moves in a new house and lives there for twenty years.

While we slide through time in a smooth camera motion seeing the house getting bigger, richer and more luxurious, the family is growing apart hopelessly.

In the end it’s the older brother who breaks the downward spiral of financial prosperity and personal downfall by taking his brother by the arm, guiding him out of the luxurious and loveless house towards his own, new future.
