O Girl of a Dream
A Beauty and the Beast Tale
The South Pole's most popular film director, Jim Penguindóvar, is writing another hit movie starring his muse, the famous actress Penelope! This time, he is taking on Beauty and the Beast with a major difference: the real curse lies in possessing beauty. The animated film raises awareness of PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder) with the movie within a movie, using the fairy tale theme of being trapped in a permanent nightmare.
On one hostile evening in 1972 Framlingham, England, a pizza boy is robbed. Who is at fault? The idealistic Mr. Bunny? Gilbert, his pet snake, who steals the pizza? Or the pizza boy who falls for Gilbert's tricks? In a metaphor for today's political disagreement, we learn that everyone is complicit. The imaginative vintage film strip aesthetic paints a mysterious overtone.
