Synopsis

Alba is a classic story of hope. Even in the darkest corners a better future is possible if we believe and will fight for it.

The short cleverly combines film and animation to portray the life and dreams of a boy stricken with illness. Following his experiences we see how the sterile and sombre life on a hospital world explodes in to the bright colours of a brilliant world of adventure. Lost in this fantastical universe the boy confronts his fear whilst fighting for survival and a way home. As the courageous knight he slays his demons finding the dawn light beyond the night of his world.
