Papa (2014)

Animation Duration 16:00

Mother tries to keep together a family that is falling to pieces. It is nearly an impossible task if the other side is not making an equal effort. Also the child will miss love, while still trying to trust and love a person that might have never existed. There has been only imagination and hope, that this person is alive, or that he might be. He is being waited for... endlessly. And when he is finally there…would it then be the right time?
