7-year-old Nora and her big brother Abel are back to school. When Nora witnesses Abel being bullied, she rushes to protect him by warning their father. But Abel forces her to remain silent. Caught in a conflict of loyalty, Nora must ultimately try to find her place, torn between the worlds of childhood and adulthood—each with its own set of paradoxical rules. A powerfully authentic look at the micro-society of a schoolyard, ‘Playground’ shows us the realities of growing up and the integration of the self in broader society.
