Marathon (2006)

Original title: Maraton

Animation Duration 14:38

A small town is gripped with excitement in anticipation of the annual marathon. Instead of the starting shot, a bomb explodes. A chain of events is set off and nobody can guess how it will end. The police inspector, a sculptor, a gang of crooks operating in the vicinity of a public lavatory – all of them have to go through their own marathon. Only a balloon released by chance glides on its own without knowing how things began or how they will end.
