Giant and the Seed


A little seed is feeling imprisoned in its foggy, paradise-like habitat, looked after by a gentle giant being, which seems to be the one responsible for keeping the environment damp and marshy. As the seed's curiosity about the place beyond the sky grows, it manages to break through the giant's steam mechanics and falls into the outer world. Far from home and in the heart of fire, the seed discovers the truth about its own identity: It is actually a volcanic rock creature, covered with fluffy plants. The giant, though, is itself an old volcano, protecting the child's paradise in his hand. Now, in a moment beyond any mask and cover, they share the beauty of each other's authentic nature.
