About God of Carnage
Kids will be kids, but let’s be honest, adults can be much worse.
11-year-olds Ferdinand and Bruno are enjoying a blissful play in the park, until Ferdinand knocks Bruno’s two front teeth out, yikes! To resolve this issue, their parents decide to meet to discuss their children’s behaviour and impose rational consequences…but what was supposed to be a calm and composed conversation rapidly turns into explosive tantrums, tears, finger pointing and name-calling. Suddenly, these wise-old adults are behaving even worse than the children!
