Dogs Have No Hell

Dogs Have No Hell, a 10-minute short film filled with humor, is a story of a man who gets out after a night in jail. He quickly rebuilds his life in the ten minutes of the film: he gets back into business, meets his girlfriend in a bar, buys them rings and even makes it to a train that takes them on a journey towards Siberian oil fields. As they sit on the train, the man looks out into the darkening landscape and wonders if Fatherland is still there. The train disappears into the night.
