Told through the medium of stop motion, two characters, cocooned in their love, go on a heart breaking journey of self-discovery. The richly textured world, made from soft cloud like fabrics, is a deceptively innocent space for the raw pain of the lovers as they fight tooth and nail to hold on to what they once had. Their woven faces are kissed, knotted, ripped and torn in equal measure, ever-weathering in the harsh reality of love. It’s a love story, but not like you’ve seen before.
