The small child's world is wonderful and extremely complex. A seemingly unimportant event can lead to tragic disaster in child's life. On the other hand, the kindness of a baby's soul is capable of working miracles, even animating a tiny fish...

The film "Rybka" was made at home, outside of a professional studio. All the required equipment - the lighting, camera holder and also shooting multilevel machine - were made by hand specially for creation of this project. The "cut-out" animation technique was used in the production. And two piping voices of the director's children sound in the film.

The first video above has the Russian credits, while the second has English - otherwise, they are the same.
