11-year-old Roos is part of a group of slightly strange children and hopes that her best friend Ella can join too. However, to be accepted into this fascinating group, they have to play along with its increasingly dangerous games. Is the girls’ friendship strong enough to resist the peer pressure? The short film Marionettes looks at what we lose when we conform and what we sacrifice if we decide to go our own way.
