The Ribbon

A young girl suddenly finds herself in a beautiful imaginary world. As she explores this enchanting place, the long ribbon of her dress gets caught, holding her back. As she pulls on the ribbon to break free, a completely unexpected journey begins.


“The Ribbon” is an animated short film about a young girl who finds herself in a magical world. Suddenly she discovers that the long ribbon of her dress is holding her back, preventing her from further exploring this enchanting paradise. We come to realize that the girl is in fact, in a coma, lying on a hospital bed and that the ribbon metaphorically represents her heart pulse. As her young heart stops beating, the ribbon vanishes and she is finally set free.
