The Ghastly Fowl confronts us with our complicity and responsibility in the destruction of the planet but also, ultimately, offers hope - hope that a new beginning is possible. A stark, beautifully animated short story that peels away the layers of the human psyche in a countdown towards the end.


The number birds 9 to 0 symbolize species of the planet, the countdown to break free of the shackles that they have created for themselves and find redemption.
