Film (United States)
"It is a time when the world is stagnant. Everyone is inside, looking out. A child finds inspiration in her insect friend, and learns to embrace joy and freedom, and then pass it on. Fly is a tiny ballet of a film that explores what it means to take flight even when you are bound."
