A young, newly orphaned woman becomes the target of religious bigots when her individuality marks her as a pariah. This allegorical animated short from Klaas Rusticus explores the struggles of maintaining uniqueness in a world where the voice of the individual must be silenced. The 41-minute short is set to the provocative choral masterpiece "Glagolitic Mass" from composer Leos Janacek and performed by the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra.
