When his mother falls seriously ill, the grown-up Willy returns to the nudist site from his childhood to bid farewell. Grief, early memories and a confusing night in the woods seem to prove fatal. Tragicomic stop-motion animation, almost entirely created with wool. This sensitive tale of epic proportions, with ditto landscapes, bagged twenty-five awards, including the 2012 HAFF Grand Prix for Narrative Shorts.
