World to Roam

United Kingdom2023animated12'Międzynarodowy konkurs krótkometrażowy (2023)

When parents discover that their new-born son in a mysterious way can roam the world, they decide to attach him to themselves using a rope. In this way they can control the boy’s journeys and protect him from danger. One day, the line rips apart. Will the parents be able to find their own child? Dark colours, a whispering narrator and the choir’s singing turn the animation into a disturbing fairy tale. Full of fantastic events and supernatural elements, the film focuses on adolescence, parenthood and the difficulty of coming to terms with your own life and the separation of your children.
