Parting Shot

Jeanne Waltz – Switzerland

While failing a suicide attempt in a nearby forest, Frédérique, a 24 years old night nurse, seriously wounds a teenager (Marco, 14) who lands in her ward. No one saw her with her rifle. Everybody thinks of a crazy hunter. In a panic, Frederique realizes that she is going to have to tend to this boy whose aggressiveness has already terrorized her colleagues. While these two “savages” learn to tame one another, Frédérique deliberately leaves a trail of hints that will lead Marco to imagine the unimaginable: this gentle nurse who cares for him is the one that almost killed him.
