Storyline

In the middle of a cold white winter, little Alma wandering up and down Barcelona's cobblestone streets, unexpectedly, she stumbles upon an out-of-the-way unobtrusive toy shop. Next to it, a wall with various names scribbled on it, which in Alma's bright eyes seems sleek and towering and utterly inviting. So without much thought, the girl puts effort into writing her name in flawless cursive, when all of a sudden, an almost perfect miniature image of herself appears, staring at her through the storefront window. And then, as if by magic, the shop's door opens, welcoming the awed girl to witness firsthand the wonders inside the small and crammed with toys store. Nevertheless, Alma's elusive twin is nowhere to be found. Written by Nick Riganas

Short and memorable
29 November 2020 | by robinhio84_See all my reviews

One of the best shorts I have seen. Thought provoking and very well done. Great animation and dark instead of "Disney" happy. It even inspired an Indian short, which I was instantly reminded off. Would be great to see this turn into a longer feature film. Sign me up!
