Synopsis 'Everyone is good for something'. A 2D hand-drawing animation about a young witch. A young witch, Ella, keeps looking for a job which suits her. As she wrongly uses her magic power, she fails in every job. She then falls into a dump with great depression. In the dump, she meets a broken puppet who then inspires her that even something labeled as rubbish may be useful in other ways. Finally, she uses her magic power again to create something great...Everyone has talents, the difference just depends on how you use it.

Remarks shared after Festival visit

"Unlike many other festivals where attendees are usually only professionals in the film industry, many of those who attended the DOK Leipzig festival are actually local town citizens, largely children, too. The response from children is entirely different from adults and teenagers. I was also glad to find that local citizens are interested in films from Hong Kong. All in all, it was a new perspective for me."

— Shared by Carrie Luk, director of Job for a Witch, after attending DOK Leipzig- International Leipzig Festival for Documentary and Animated Film in 2012, under the sponsorship of NAE.
