Sandguy (2013)

Original title: Liivamees

Animation | Family Duration 15:00

Sand on the beach is a natural as air, sun, life, love. The trails draw on the sand their endless stories asking, can we value these things before they are gone forever? When the sand and Sandguy have left and the Stoneguy opens his eyes, does he stay or leave too?
