Winter is coming and a young girl finds that a predator has been killing the family livestock, she sets out to take care of it once and for all.
Very nicely animated, this short film tells a simple tale one of compassion and survival. The narrative is delivered without a word, with a lot said in the expressions and actions of the characters; it isn't an unique story or message but it is one that pleasing in its simplicity. The animation is deceptive because the characters appear reasonably simplistic but yet a lot is done with them, and the background and shot framing is well done; the only issue I really had was that I thought the fox was created in a bit too soft a style and came off a bit too Disneyfied compared to what I would have liked.
It is a light film and the shortness of it and the simple nature of the message is not going to blow anyone away, but it is generally pleasing and engaging, with very good animation on the whole.
