The tale of Walter, a rookie secret agent faced with a problem seldom covered in basic training: what to do when a curious pigeon gets trapped inside your multi-million dollar, government-issued nuclear briefcase.
All alone in her room, a solitary elderly widow lying on her deathbed yearns to reunite with her beloved late husband, nevertheless, the road to the afterlife can be long, while on the other hand, today's modern medicine works miracles.
A tattered voodoo doll slowly wakes up from its slumber and realises that it is next in line for being stabbed through the heart by the pitiless High Priest of Voodoo. On its loosely-woven, plain canvas little body, a prominent scarlet "X" marks the tiny heart; if the Priest pierces it, it will be the end and a new rag doll will take its place. When you are so small and insignificant, it takes a lot of courage to defy your oppressors, nevertheless, has the doll what it takes to save himself and his fellows?Written by
one of rare films who use imagination , care for details, drama and emotion in perfect manner. a touching movie about sacrifice and team spirit. a splendid animation , so simple but so extraordinary. and the story is magnificent. in fact, this short film, real gem, it is an pure artistic experience, exploring unknown possibilities of a real delicate subject, giving not ordinaries characters, using the tension with precise delicacy. to define it as beautiful is only a word because it is more than touching or an artistic success but it is tool for rediscover fundamental aspect of life. in fact, it is a kind of poem. like old ones about heroic virtues, about dramatic choices, about noble gestures. an useful film. for remind yourself.
