A beautiful animation by a film student makes a powerful point about the everyday struggles of life.

Bristol School of Animation student Ollie Magee tells the story of a falling man who finds peace in his fate.

When he learns to let go of emotion, sensation and his physical body, his impact on the city and people below is felt — if only for a brief moment.

“Fall is a very personal film, about the struggles of life, coming to terms with our fate and ultimately the futility of it all,” Magee added. “The story emerged throughout the production, so it has become a very vivid reflection of where I was at in that moment of my life. I hope it is a film that others can reflect on, as well as find humor in its portrayal of life — as I at least know it.”

So intense at 2:21…
