Producer: Alan Holly - Irlanda

This 9-minute animation challenges the conventional assumptions about the end of life. It’s not dark and cold and cruel, it’s surprisingly soft, generous, and full of sympathy.
A bit humour at the beginning of the story provides an easier transition into the richer layers of emotions later. The overall colour scheme is dark, yet soft and ethereal. All the contours are rich in colours and emotion, yet so fragile, as if to illustrate the same characteristics of the border between life and death.
