This short film by Melanie Lopez and Simon Boucly tells the story of a little boy and his group of friends. They all have something unique about them that makes them a little different from other children.

All of them have have bumps and bruises or, as the little boy calls them, “stains”. It’s not really explained where these stains come from. At first, it just looks like the kids have picked up a few knocks whilst playing games or through messing around. But as the film goes on, it’s revealed that there might be a darker explanation for their marks.

The story of the short film is told through the eyes of the innocent little boy. Because of that, we’re never really sure what the reality of the situation is. But it’s clear that these kids aren’t just getting these marks through playing about. The group support each other though and find friendship through their tragic similarity, that they all have the same “stains”. It’s a touching and bittersweet story that will stay with you long after you’ve finished watching it.
