What would you do if one day you are walking in the snow and suddenly you see a cord hanging from the sky? It's one of those kitsch ones, with an exaggerated amount of frills, and it appears to have extraordinary magical powers. Pull and it's night. Pull once more and it's day again. Marvellous, but would you be cautious as not to destroy the biorhythm of everybody on earth? Or would you decide to have some major fun? The protagonist in this little story is scared, but willing to take the last option. Written by

"Dangle" is a surprising short film that packs in its six minutes a big punch thanks to the excellent work of its director, Phil Traill, who also happens to be its writer and its sole star!
This is a witty piece that is tremendously enjoyable. The young man we meet as the it opens discovers a cord coming from the sky. The end part of it is thin and as he attempts to get a hold of the cord. He has to try several times before he can grasp the mysterious red rope that is an extension of what he has grabbed. This man is puzzled by why is it there in the first place and decides to explore by pulling with all his power. The surprise that follows overwhelms him.
Mr. Traill ought to be congratulated by saying so much in such a little time in this amazing short film that will delight anyone that is lucky enough to catch it, as we did.
