What's inside a silent tear

ABIGAIL, a 7 years old girl, walks through her house looking for her parents to help her look after a dying bird. In her journey she founds out that the paintings come to life and the walls start talking to her. Little by little the sea seems to come near the house, untill it starts to flood.
The reality and fantasies of the child will blend in a sensory short movie that will make her abandon the house and let it sink, so she can scape through the shore.
