THE MOTHER OF PEARL CLOUD -
an illustrated book, animated short film and a series of posters to be.
The story is about a boy who when his mother dies is left to wait
for a year in a tiny boat in a desolate lake surrounded by mountains.
His father then picks hime up so they can be a family,
and he gets to meet a new mother and new little brother.
The fairy tale is based on the year my father spent in a children's home after the death of his mother.
