repentance

This is the experimental animation that combines a flowing imagination with digital paint and a soundtrack based on Japanese folk music composed by the director himself. The story is based on the confession of a girl. She has lost her loved one and could not control her feelings of regret. All she could do was pray, dance, and run in the dark. While the works show a couple of scenes with many ancient Japanese metaphors, the audience will be able to discover universal emotions.
