Watch "Duck" - A Short Film About A Boy Who's Afraid Of Being Touched

Duck – directed by Jakob Daschek; part of a collection of 8 new shorts, produced by Ridley Scott, in a collaborative effort with USA Network, titled The Character Project.

Synopsis reads: Emmanuel isn’t like other ten-year-olds — he can’t play with them, he can’t focus at school, and he can’t even bear to be hugged by his mother. Manny’s crippling fear of being touched is threatening to ruin his life. Until, at his mother’s prompting, he visits a local boxing gym. There, with help from a seasoned trainer, Emmanuel learns not just to confront his phobia, but to use it, in this inspiring story about facing our fears, owning our strengths, and fighting for a chance to be who we are.
