Storyline

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 Nick Riganas

A Rare Find
29 August 2010 | by sinemaiestasSee all my reviews

Finding a short film that tells a complete story without jumping or missing important plot points is hard to find. It's even harder to find that in a 4 minute film.

This one does just that.

Hands down, some of the best writing I've seen in a short. All coming from a Student? Wow. This kid has a bright future ahead of him. I can't wait to see what else he puts out there.

Amazing CGI, a perfectly attached score, and phenomenal writing. Really, this is what short film making is all about. The attention to detail and the quality result in the end has made this short a rare find indeed.
