Seven-year-old Nora sees that her big brother, Abel, is being bullied at school. Though she tries to intervene and protect him, Abel is not interested in being helped by his little sister. Playground is a strong and convincing film about how society, schools and families fall short in the face of bullying.

At the same time, Playground contains startling visual choices. Filmed entirely on the school grounds, the camera follows Nora closely, with the background often out of focus. This, combined with the remarkable performances of the young actors, makes Playground a stylish and realistic representation of how raw and brutal everyday life in a primary school can actually be.
