Nip it in the bud

We meet a young woman with tousled hair and sleepy eyes, who goes through her daily morning routine check in the mirror. She notices a thin long hair on her chin and tries to pluck it. To her great dislike, the hair stretches out and becomes longer instead of yielding to the tweezers. She becomes more and more desperate, and resorts to stronger and stronger tools, but the hair remains stubbornly stuck, and grow longer for each attempt to remove it. After a moment of dark hopelessness, she gets a brilliant idea.

Nip it in the bud is a short animated comedy, created by Ida Thronæs Rotli and Klipp og Lim. The film has been fully financed by the National Film Institute and Midtnorsk Filmsenter, and is ready for international festival distribution from spring 2024.
