Six-year-old Cathy believes her parents don’t even notice her anymore. She decides to test them on a weekend trip to their country house and disappears into the woods. Alone, she evades the police who are looking for her and sets up a new home. She has a pet fish and some seedlings to take care of while she contemplates life on her own. With a fairy tale-like setting and told in voiceover from Cathy’s point-of-view, the film opens a door into a little girl’s private world. The director’s own daughter is cast as Cathy. Ages 8+. Subtitles will be read aloud.
