A free-thinking 8 year-old does everything she can to stop the birthday party her parents are planning for her.

Director’s Vision

Birthdays are weird. I’ve always had a strange relationship with them — expectations and reality usually meet awkwardly in the middle, and I’ve had some big fights with people I care a lot about (I think I’m cursed). These feelings are at the core of this short. But not in a serious way. Because despite all the drama, birthdays can be quite fun.
