Storyline

An evil man steals the dreams of an entire village over several nights, until the villagers, with no dreams left, cannot sleep properly, and become increasingly restless. Then the man audaciously advertises the dreams for sale, so, naturally, everyone comes to buy something, even a quick nap. But young Sarah hears a familiar sound in his dream vault, and steals it, realising it is her very own dream bird. The others catch on, and all take back their dreams, leaving the evil man to be haunted by all the nightmares nobody wanted... Written by Cynan Rees <cynanrees@hotmail.com>

Another incredible animation sheperded into existence by the National Film Board of Canada

This excellent animated short is another in a large catalogue produced by the National Film Board of Canada. I have yet to see a bad short or documentary having any connection at all, however tangentially. to the NFBC. In this, a man is stealing people's dreams for resale in his shop. From a fascinating concept springs good artwork and somewhat minimal animation and an excellent script to become a moving and effective work. Most highly recommended.
