Synopsis

A boy on motorcycle tries to return home from a mysterious island. He meets a friendly bird, turtle and similarly multiplied cats, but monstrous spirit chases and prevents him from runaway with spooky traps.

In the ending credits of every animation film we usually read hundred names of contributors. Hardly believable, but Latvian wunderkind G. Zimbalodis completed a minimalist silent fantasy absolutely alone. It is most fascinating cinematic miracle of 2019. Sensual, beautiful, poignant, meditative, wordless quest in truly magnificent world.

Loosely inspired by Hayao Miyazaki experiment was basically born in the editing room after 3,5 years without detailed plot: 7 days a week and 10 hours a day of tireless searches.
