This film is about the development of a relationship between a mother and child. From happy times to hardships, we learn the necessity to grow and let go before it is too late. Paper craft stop motion and old family photos were used to design the frames for a nostalgic, handmade feeling, as well as a stable camera to create a sense of routine and comfort.

The color script was inspired by old family photos in hopes of creating a more natural nostalgic feeling.
We wanted to keep the watercolor, hand made look to make the film more personal.
