Short animation about a depressed skeleton king who has not felt love for ten thousand years. He has stopped hoping he will lose his heart ever again. Then, a flamboyant knight appears.
Lonely and bored, an immortal skeleton king spends his days in his millenary realm. He has not felt any emotions for ages and his defences are so tight that most visitors do not even make it to the end of the draw bridge. But then a stout-hearted knight arrives who pierces the king’s physical and emotional barriers. Hopelessly in love, the king tries to persuade the knight to stay with him. But as it turns out the knight is already married. What is the impact on the king’s heart, in this 3D computer animation with spectacular and dramatic-looking images and ironic humour?
