How I spent the summer…

Animated short film

Natalia FATIKH[Russia]


The hand-drawn animation tells a sorrowful story of a boy who visits his grandmother living in the village during the summer. The boy falls from his bicycle and, behind a hole in the wall, finds a piglet, a big black dog, and its puppies. He doesn’t get along with the local boys but makes friends with the animals. One day, however, the owner appears and takes the puppies and piglets away, and the big dog and the boy snuggle up to each other for comfort.
