Animated feature film
The film depicts the childhood of Martha Jane CANNARY, a legendary female gunfighter in the American frontier, the Old West. As a woman who chose a genderless lifestyle to support her family, Martha’s growth is portrayed through a painting-like animation with no outlines, which integrates the characters with the background. The depiction of the vast nature of the American West also effectively highlights Martha’s emotional changes and decisions.
