Silent as Murderers
Hiljaa kuin murhaajat
Two friends are spending their last summer together, working as gardeners. They share a secret: in the night, they sneak into other people’s homes while the residents are sleeping. Silent as Murderers is about a strange phase in the life of two close friends, and their unbalanced relationship. The short drama has some thriller elements and keeps falling forward without explaining itself too much.
