A Plastic Toy Dinosaur, short film from Benjamin Bee

Morgan, a nine-year-old boy, is picked up by his absentee father, Rod for his weekly visit. By the end of the day, Morgan has realised that his dad is just as fragile and immature as himself, and that age means nothing when parents cannot communicate with their children. Rod buys his son the wrong ice-cream, swears at his teacher and won't hold Morgan's hand when he crosses the road.
