It’s a short animated film named BIRD'S EYE.


After many years a woman returns to her childhood home on a remote island. She carries a big suitcase and nobody knows what is inside. At the same time her family is also clearly hiding something from her. Encounters with different characters on the island, a group of circus artists, and an unusual bird - turn into a metaphorical journey back into her childhood, but also a deep uncanny family history unfolds.
