A tumbleweed is blown around the southwestern desert, through a small town. It interacts with the people and animals of the area until it takes on the stature of a character. Very reminiscent of "The Red Balloon" that way. I loved it. At one point it falls into a trench where men are digging. There is a long pause and then it rockets straight up into the air. You know the men threw it out of their way, but by then it has taken on such a personal character role that you feel like it jumped out by itself. The end is a little sad, though, as it gets snagged in a fence line with a thousand other tumbleweeds. It struggles to get away but (I'll stop with that.)
