The view fades in of a shot of family pictures on a table. In most of these pictures, there is a young boy, only a few years of age and in another picture is a couple in wedding attire, presumably the parents of the boy. In all the pictures, everyone is smiling and seems happy.
As the camera pans across the photos, there is a dark hallway being lit only with the lights from another room. The light is not wide so it can be assumed that there is a door catching most of the light that is being given off. From that it can be assumed that whatever is happening in the other room was not meant to be seen however sight of this even has slipped out. A shadow that is cast on a staircase moves across the light in what seems to be a backward motion. Just as a guess, the shadow is probably being cast by the mother and wife that appeared in the pictures on the table.
The child who was probably the one in the pictures is sitting on the stairs in his pajamas with a toy in his hand. Given the lighting and his pajamas, it is most likely night time and past the time that he should be asleep. He is clearly visible, being illuminated by the light from the other room which means he probably has a clear view of what is happening in the other room.
He looks up from playing with his toy to see what is happening in the other room. He is near the top of the stairs which means he probably came to sit there after being woken up from what is going on in the other room.
The shot moves to behind the child revealing a different angle of light coming from the other room. Another shadow is visible, unclear if it is the same shadow from 0:05. The shadow moves forward relatively quickly as well as moving its arm quickly as well. Given the setting and the movements of the two shadows in the video so far, it can be assumed there is some type of dispute between the parents of this child and that is the reason he is awake.
The shot is now a close up of the face of the child. He is staring intently at the event that is happening in the other room with a rather cautious look on this face. He takes his eyes from the other room for a quick second to return back to his toy possibly to try to forget about what is happening yet still with the same look on his face.
He is startled by something, probably a loud noise, and returns his gaze to the other room, this time with a very concerned and scared look on his face. His eyes widened, his mouth opens slightly and his breathing has increased. Looking at his eyes, you see them dart quickly between two points of focus most likely each of his parents. His eyes move from a high to low position twice. One of the parents is probably on the ground. It can only be assumed that one parent has struck the other in an act of violence. The boy is in awe trying to understand why one of his parents has hit the other.
The shot fades with the boy still looking at his parents to a black screen with the question “Children have to sit by and watch. What’s your excuse?”
