The Drone & The Kid


A lonely Pakistani boy in a rural town pleads for the attention of his older brother during a cricket match, but is rejected. Later, a U.S. Military Drone crashes just outside of his town. The next day, he finds the camera device from the crash, and is finally able to get the attention he craves when he discovers it is still able to transmit to the American drone operator on the other side. Ultimately, his new “toy” is revealed to have unclear intentions, and coupled with his brother’s suspicion, he is ultimately forced to bury it in the wilderness, and forsake the mechanical friendship he made.
