The Cure
A mixture of puppetry, hand-drawings and experimental animation, this fantasy film is about a man’s journey to an unknown destination, in search of a cure. Giving up his home, family and all earthly possessions, he seeks his childhood friend in an unknown place, who promises him the answer to his quest.

He travels, weighed down with ghosts of his past, facing the ignorance and menace of strangers; trying to blend with others. The tale develops into magic realism as he loses himself in the dark woods, caught up in a desperate metaphysical adventure. Adrift between real and imaginary worlds, he is confronted by his demons, His travels lead him on a path of self-discovery, to examine and understand the world around him; while reflecting upon and healing his troubled childhood. The film ends with him realising that there is nothing wrong with him and to enjoy life as it is.
