(2013) I am glad we can be honest about this
Short film
I have to confess. I like this film more with every year that passes.

Description / Catalogue Text

Father not really there, mother the guardian still, daughter with her secrets and son with the solution. In this erratic classically animated short film we meet a modern family that is divided and battling demons. Murder, Vengeance, Lust, Truth, Loyalty. And Dance. Oh sweet dance!
