The last year has been pretty tough for Aurelia. After that incident that ended with her having to get an abortion, leaving her fragile, she desperately needs to get away. So, when a friend of hers, Natasha, finds her a job as privet tourist guide for foreign yacht-owners at Syros, she seizes the opportunity.

It is the middle of July, when Aurelia boards the yacht of some British family, showing them around the island, before taking them for a swim at a secluded beach on the Didimi islet, near Syros. That’s when she gets attacked by a wasp, which manages to enter her ear.

When she wakes up in the medical centre, she is told that the wasp isn’t in her ear any more. Yet, that’s only the half of it. The blood tests they ran, to make sure she is okay, show she’s pregnant. Of course, that can’t be. Aurelia hadn’t had intercourse with anyone for a very long time, and the tests wouldn’t be able to show it yet if it were from last night’s misstep. Or would they?

Things only get weirder as time goes by. By night her belly has swollen as if she’d already been pregnant for weeks, if not months. And then there are the wasps. They seem to be stalking her. They force her to retreat inside her house, not daring to go outside lest they attack her again.

 

As the lines between reality and hallucination blur, Aurelia begins to question everything she sees, everything she feels. With horrible memories from the past, distant and recent, returning to hunt her, and with her friend Natasha having left for the mainland on some urgent business, Aurelia is left alone to fight her winged demons. To fight for her sanity and for her life.

zetablonde

i really think this has its own origination.. some people may think it's not or it reminds them of something but this has unique style and with simple words the writer builds up in your mind the scenes and the character with just 12 lines... imagine what he can do with more!..


George.br

Thrilling!


Esther

Thrilling, but not very refreshing

great plot.can't wait to watch it.!!!


DorothyBlg

Well...title misleading...the plot unrealistic...other than that...good luck!!!!


Bailey

This plot is so similar to that of the bestselling book The Nest, in which a baby is created by wasps in order to replace the baby brother of the protoganist who is also beginning to question everything he sees. Perhaps your script is different than The Nest, but this synopsis is similar enough that it wouldn't be an original short film.

I'm not sure that i would like to see it as a short film..


TheHULK

The story has no buildup or suspense. The only way not to be dull, is to create a compelling character out of Aurelia.


santa

No twists, common story.

Dimira_Panagakou

This summary makes me eager to see a short film like this one! Excellent idea!


maria_kasteloy

I think it is getting over detailed making the reader/viewer to not be interested as much as the description was shorter and developed in a more mysterious way.


ofilia

We need more short films like this one...really interesting, creative and original! A combination of thriller, adventure, science fiction, drama... I would really like to enjoy it in the big screen and of course see what happens!
