Driven by greed, two young boys venture out on an epic treasure hunt across the world, but to reach their goal they will need to conquer greater dangers than flesh-eating totem-poles and transvestite angels.
An old Viking is determined to reach Valhalla, the warrior's afterlife full of excessive drinking and debauchery. To gain entry he has to die honorably in battle, but he discovers that the right death isn't so easy.

The story takes place in the small village of Tohan, as the young boy Wilhelm is wasting his life on everyday business. Suddenly a glorious hero rides by him. As the boy watches the knight in total admiration the hero accidentally drops a treasure map. Wilhelm picks it up, but sees that another boy, Vito, has also claimed the map. They rip the map into two pieces by accident and end up with one part each. With a half each, they are forced to travel after the treasure on an epic quest together, in hope of becoming as glorious as the hero...
This is a fantastic little adventure that people of all ages and languages can enjoy.
In response to the unnecessary and blind 4/10 review posted before this one, what the bloody hell is wrong with you? "Didn't feel connected to the characters." Seriously? It's a 9 minute short film, and yet the characters were fun and entertaining to watch. Whether you feel a connection or not is rather irrelevant in this instance.
It's animation style is rather unique and very colourful. It was a pleasure to watch. 'The Reward' contains humour, satire, simple life lessons, and even spawned a short series.
To give an animation like this such an abhorrent score is wrong. For those of you who are interested in this, please ignore that 4/10 review. Besides, it's 9 minutes long. It is more than worth your while.
