In our short film “Nearest and Dearest” a boy would love to stop time, so his bigger sister won’t move out. His grandmother apparently knows how to do the trick: Scaring someone at the right moment. If you want to know how this works you can watch the film on Easter (April 4th) as part of the TV show “Siebenstein” at 10:40 a.m. on KIKA.
