A coming-of-age and a coming-out, sprinkled with humour and hesitations, emotions and werewolves, and a lot of fantastic elements. Paul manages to reveal the most hidden thoughts in the human mind and translate them into a personal story. The animation is a creative statement of a love relationship that does not pass the test in front of the parents’ eyes. The artist uses all means of expression and combines fragments of dreams and of subconscious memory with human feelings, transposed as a 2D drawing.
