Cartoon Synopsis:

An ode to the Arctic and its inhabitants. Combining figurative abstraction with magic realism, this film depicts a world in which whales fall out of the sky and fish turn into balloons. With bold lines reminiscent of the stark simplicity of Inuit art, this ode to the Arctic and its inhabitants is a reminder of the interconnectedness of all things. We are all affected by the fate of the Arctic, which, each year, is disappearing a little farther into the ocean.
