dc.description.abstractThe Scent is a short fiction film following Sarah, who is in a relationship with Jake, a PhD student in art history, and works as an intern for a business firm. It unfolds as a flashback. Jake fetishizes Sarahs back and dislikes her idea of having a tattoo on it. John, Sarahs boss, evades the subject of a permanent contract despite calling her a perfect employee-to-be. Julia, a new employee and a freelance photographer, offers to draw a temporary tattoo on Sarahs back after they spend a day together, shooting photographs. Tension concealed behind a quiet facade emerges in successive events: Sarah breaks up with Jake following an argument over the tattoo, Julia disappears without notice, and Sarah gets fired (or quits as she puts it). Nevertheless, in the end, she finds peace by herself.
