The Canadian fable of Haida is told in an animated film with a magical and beautiful form. When a mouse in a traditional costume shows up and starts to knit a blanket in front of a bored fisherman at night, a story appears from the blanket and unfolds. At the ancient beach of Haida, a woman goes into the sea when a killer whale steals away her lover. In the deep world of souls, this couple takes on an adventure to get back to the land. The young fisherman who didn’t take his eyes off of his smartphone gets absorbed into this supernatural world where fantastic adventures take place, and the time of the past and that of the present become one. This film is a beautiful animation that is full of mythology, folklore, grandeur adventure and poetic glamor. (SEO Do-eun)
