When a sweet old lady manages to reunite her family to tell them she won the lottery, her despicable children start behaving like vultures to fight for the jackpot.

To be fair, this short film is a truly dark comedy. And we mean really dark. It takes you on an emotional rollercoaster, spacing from pity to anger to utter surprise and shock. KINI tells the bad relationships between what seems to be a sweet and caring mom, with her house full of photographs of her children, and her daugthers and sons who have absolutely no interest in her. That… Until she wins the lottery. Money transforms everybody, including the only daughter that seemed to be the “good” character of this story. But then, KINI takes another route and tells much more, leaving the audience surprised by its ending.
