Clocking in at 26 minutes, it follows a single mother of four who struggles to take care of her children; in an attempt to rekindle her relationship with an ex, she claims to only be babysitting them. “Wasp” won the Sundance Short Film Prize in 2005 before going on to take home the Oscar for Best Live Action Short Film. Natalie Press stars as the mother in question.
