Short Drop

At a lonesome crossroad, a young woman waits on the taxi stand after partying late. With no public transport in sight at this hour, she begins to grow weary. Only a private car appears on the stand moments later. She approaches the vehicle hesitantly, but she decides to get in, since the driver convinces her that he'll drop her off anywhere she wants to go. The driver eventually strikes up some awkward small talk, which she struggles to follow. As the car ride ensues, the young woman grows uncomfortable due to his unwanted gaze and prying conversation. (Runtime: 9 minutes)

All Skin No Laugh

A boy spends a regular rainy night at home alone when he hears a random knock at the door. Suspicious and surprised, he opens it to a vulnerable, beautiful stranger who needs help. Unbeknownst to him, he welcomes something into his house that he shouldn't. (Runtime: 20 minutes)
