Review by: Tom Andry on Feb. 7, 2011 :
Wonderful. A poignant and interesting tale. Perfectly told at just the right length. Too often these short works feel rushed, longer ones padded. This one had everything it needed and nothing else. I could imagine it being told to an ancient boy before bed to continue the traditions of his people. A great opening scene for a movie. Easily five stars.
