DIRECTED BY: Gabriel Harel
SCREENPLAY BY: Gabriel Harel, Nicolas Pleskof
PRODUCED BY: Kazak Productions

Yùl’s older brother is a small-time thief who delivers the purses stolen from older ladies to a stronger thug. The thug terrorizes the boys with a scary dog and puts constant pressure on them. The youngest of the lot treats stealing as good fun, like chasing a colorful snake around the fields. The snake becomes a messenger of karma and a symbol of nature’s justice, ready to punish a man for his crimes. The monochromatic animation by Gabriel Harel is a short parable about growing up, gaining awareness and about character flaws that become a force against hate.
