Three for the Taking

Sixteen-year-old Inga enjoys a carefree life playing football and hanging out with her boyfriend until she finds out about her mother’s deadly disease.  The tragic news forces her to grow up quickly and take care of her two younger siblings. Faced with being a teen mother, she avoids social workers who want to place the children at a care service unit and moves from her boyfriend’s place to her aunt’s to stay under the radar. In the end, her dedication is unusually rewarded.

Three for the Taking, filmed in 2006, was directed by Bartosz Konopka, whose film Rabbit a la Berlin was nominated for an Academy Award.  Three for the Taking has received numerous awards, including the Grand Prix and Best Actor in the Brest European Short Film Festival and Best Debut in Message to Man Short Film Festival in St. Petersburg.
