We are all stuck at home during the pandemic, but one little girl discovers how to fight the despair and make her way back to hope.
An international collaboration between director Aleksei Postnikov, animator Sasha Vodolazhchenko and the band Sky-Pony results in an animated musical short film snapshotting this historic moment in time. The film brings together the talents of eight artists scattered across the globe, all working from home.
