Synopsis

This nine-minute film invites you to laugh and cringe as a pair of three-year old friends raise questions about relationships and power. Mia and Grant adore each other. Then they start analyzing a video that shows one of their fights from six months earlier. Along the way, they end up in one disagreement after another, even coming to blows before they finish. Years later, Mia and Grant watch again as twelve-year olds. Together with the audience, the two adolescents witness familiar routines of the adult world already playing out in pre-school.
