After his parents’ divorce, a young boy has to deal with the challenges of a strained relationship with his father. A visit to his house leaves the boy feeling out of place, but he finds solace in the magic he creates. The film’s use of contrasting warm and cold colours adds a refreshing dimension to a common contemporary issue. Its unique chalkboard-style animation welcomes us into a beautiful, emotional tale that tugs at the imagination and brings an element of comfort into a complex family dynamic.
