  4. Music video for 'Lowlands', a song by Belgian band 'Roscoe'.

    A strange and harsh coming-of-age story, in which a son falls victim to his father's wish of earning big money with illegal street-fights. The boy becomes a victorious fighter, until faith strikes upon him.
    This story, set against the atmospherical backdrop of Bucharest's suburbs, talks about the expectations a father puts into his son.
