A mysterious group of figures find each other in the woods - they unite in movement and, as evening falls, reveal their true identities.

Swarm explores the idea of crowds and group dynamics from within and without. It subverts the judgement we as onlookers make on large groups, be they teenagers, refugees or strangers by revealing more more about them. The unmasking at the end shows the gangs young age in contrast to the movement that precedes it, surprising the audience and forcing them to draw their own conclusions about the origin of the group.
