SSF: “Every Star”

SSF: “Every Star” June 29, 2015

As someone who moved to a place with quite a bit of light pollution (Cheek by Jowl SoCal) to one with very little (Big, Beautiful, and Pretty Near Empty Wyoming), this simple but lovely little short really hit me between the eyes. (There are plenty of metaphorical reasons to like it, I suppose. But I was mostly just responding to the literal ones, which is pretty much always my first instinct.)

In everyone’s heart, there lives a little boy and his star. The story taken place between cities and nature. A mysterious boy from nature collects stars and sends them to every city child, who is unable to see the stars trough the foggy sky.
