Trailer for Streuner (The Stray)

Debut short film
Most of all, the two lads Edgar and Wolf like to play at war on an abandoned military site. One day Wolf finds a dog without an owner, and makes friends with the animal. This doesn`t suit Edgar at all, especially as his friend forgets his “duties” as a soldier because of the black, constantly yapping mutt!
