high praise
8 August 2017 | by See all my reviews

This is unarguably a finely-tuned, short animation that tells a touching, universal story without words. The creators of this short have done noble work, as artists, as story tellers, as social commentators and as humanists. The awards should be forthcoming, and are well deserved.
