This hauntingly beautiful animation about life and death is one of the most moving films we’ve seen.

Death goes about his daily job of taking the lives of animals in the forest, when one day, he comes across a lovely doe. He falls in love with her and can’t bring himself to take her life, so they slowly become close friends.

In the end, the doe teaches Death that dying is also part of life.

“I have never viewed Death as something dark or evil, and I wanted to explore that in my animation,” filmmaker Marsha Onderstijn said.

“So I wanted to make Death a character that an audience could relate to and sympathize with,” she added. “What would it be like to be Death? To always have to end lives and to remain behind, alone. Maybe Death is a creature with feelings and emotions? What if Death fell in love with life?”

The doe is that visualization of life. She isn’t afraid of Death and builds a friendship with him throughout her life. And when her time has come, she embraces Death like the friend he has become.
