More About the Film

A girl gathers precious seeds that quickly sprout, grow and bear fruit. On the surface, it all seems idyllic, but the real battle is being waged underground – dangerous creatures from the dark are trying to get hold of the seeds as well. Only the strongest, the ones that have overcome all obstacles, will manage to break through… An allegory about the struggle with one’s own demons created using a combination of 2D and stop motion animation.
