This is an interesting short film. It's a weird little story with a Twilight Zone feel to it. I loved the ending, and the father and son hunting party were great. They had good chemistry, and of course, J.K. Simmons is the man. The couple, on the other hand, didn't act like a couple. It seemed like the two actors hated acting together and just struggled and spat and steamrolled their way through the script. From their first lines together, and every subsequent interaction, it never felt like a desperate couple with problems beyond their most current one, it just felt awkward and unreal, their unusual circumstance notwithstanding. Worth watching, but it never gelled as a film until the last minute.
