This computer graphics imagery takes two opposite concepts, black and white, and creates a story about the origin of shadings. Once upon a time, there were two nations, Black and White, and a dog that both their kings dearly cherished. Eventually the two nations went to war and the dog died, a casualty of the war. Both nations admitted to their stupidity and reconciled; thus shadings were born in this world. The last scene is a magnificent depiction of the moment that light shines into a world without shadings.
