About the Story 

The protagonist of this film is the world championship balloon animal creator. At the balloon animal world championships, the man unintentionally causes a horriific event to happen and develops a mental block for balloon animal-making. This mental block ruins his life. This is the story of how he overcomes that.

This film is a story that we believe needs to be told. It is important to us because it has themes that we can all relate to. While the film is about a world championship balloon animal creator, the challenges he faces are ones that anybody can relate too. 

By contributing to this film, you are adding to the production value tremendously. Your contributions will allow us to tell a much more effective story.
