Synopsis One day, a father took his son and daughter to the countryside to celebrate the sister’s birthday. When the brother was busy preparing for the birthday party, some wild moths came and disturbed him again and again. He was so impatient that he killed the moths but his sister felt upset about the death of the moths. Therefore, the brother put the dead moths into a photo frame and made them a specimen as his sister’s birthday present.

Remarks shared after Festival visit

“As a student, NAE has brought us an incredible experience and opportunity. It showed us what filming has to offer us, and what we can gain from it in return. I would love for more people to learn about this project and to benefit from it.”
