Going about things the hard way!
26 February 2019 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

This animated short is made using CGI and is quite lovely. My only complaint is that the film looked a bit jerky...and the smoothness I expected in such a film isn't quite there. This could be due to me seeing a bad copy on YouTube. What I do know for sure is that the animation, despite this, looks quite nice.

The story is about a boy who desperately wants to become an astronaut and spends his entire life selling lemonade in order to make his somewhat insane plan come true. Worth watching and cute.
