A girl has a heart that beats faster than normal and so loudly that it disturbs the neighbors and their dogs. They complain, and she explains that she has a bird's heart and that she thinks she's a bird trapped in a girl's body. They scoff and she flees, but she later calms down and returns home. As time passes the neighbors get used to the noise and eventually forget about it. And as everyone goes about their routine lives, the girl accepts her differences and becomes comfortable with herself, leading to an unusual transformation, and leaving the neighbors and their dogs to envy her.

A pleasant and strange little tale...
5 February 2008 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is a very interesting short film from the onset due to it unusual graphics. Instead of being live action, cartoon or CGI (which is quite the craze these days), the story is told through odd black pencil-like drawings that have an odd Gothic charm. While it's not the most colorful and exciting style I have ever seen, it deserves very high marks for being original.

As for the story, it's a bizarre fairy tale of sorts. I little girl has a very odd heart condition--it beats much faster than normal and it beats so loudly that it bothers the neighbors. After a while, she is hated by everyone and quite sad--culminating in an exciting ending that makes you wonder who you should really feel sad for in this quirky film.

This is a cute little tale that is worth a look--pretty interesting and I look forward to seeing more from this crew.
