A Short Film By Caroline Coutts

A fantastical short film combining live action and stop motion puppet animation to tell the tale of two little girls who disobey their mother for a glimpse into a magical other world and end up paying dearly for their caprice. Set in England in 1882, the story is adapted from the Gothic fairy tale “The New Mother,” by Lucy Lane Clifford.
