The Kiosk / Kiosks, directed by Anete Melece, Switzerland / Latvia, 2013, 6'55''

For years now, the kiosk has been Olga‘s little home simply because her sweet tooth and monotonous life has made her bigger than the exit. To distract herself, she reads travel magazines and dreams of being far away. An absurd incident starts the beginning of her journey.
