This short is inspired by an Indian
fable about a man who runs away
from a tiger. He trips and falls into
a hole but manages to grab on
to a root. Beneath him is a bottomless
pit, above him the tiger. He realizes
he will die. That's when he sees
a small strawberry growing next to
the root. He slowly picks it, observes
it, and savors it. It tastes like the best
thing he’s ever eaten... and it’s
the happiest moment of his life.
