Synopsis

Yellow explores that disturbing combination of naiveté and power possessed by pre-pubescent children. When the car breaks down next to a rape field on a family outing, Natalie, a seven year old girl, takes the car keys and disappears into the sea of yellow flowers. When her mother's boyfriend follows, he finds himself far from the road confronting a naked girl and a deeply uncomfortable situation reaches a climax.
