2008 Goteborg Film Festival / 2008 Sao Paulo International Short Film Festival Synopsis Program Note
Gerda is a woman with power who has shaken things up and Alex is a bank-thief without a plan B. Both of them know what they want and are willing to go far for it.
Alex robbed a bank with a rabbit mask on. She happens to jump into Gerda\'s car and run away keeping her as a hostage. Old lesbian, Gerda has spent her entire life with one partner. She makes her mind for her granddaughterlike Alex when the police get closer to trace Alex. The very first shot of \"Doris Manifesto\" means that all the crew and cast have to be women. Fully following this manifesto, this movie secures a heart-warming motherhood melodrama. [Sunah KIM]
