Let’s face it, sometimes reality can suck. When we fall and get hurt, when we fail at something, when the plan we made doesn’t go as we hoped, it’s always hard to think about how beautiful life is.
This is the subject of the short film by Akvile Magicdust and produced by London-based animation studio Somesense.
Lucy, the protagonist of a series of works that Akvile Magicdust published on Vice, is a young girl who tries to skateboard, but instead of having fun she ends up hurting her knees.
The initial discouragement, however, is followed by a deeper thought, from which we should all learn something.
