Film Synopsis

"Clay figures battle their fickle egos and struggle to communicate. They may suffer physical and emotional imperfections but, like humans, they’re in a constant state of transformation. Wielding violence and tenderness, these figures perpetually collide. They sculpt one another and blur the line between destruction and creation. Each collision leaves them forever changed. This stop-motion animation is a celebration of vulnerability, imperfection, and the human capacity for transformation."
