short film by fernando mendes

Once upon a time… a sweet, innocent little girl who lived under the cruel tyranny of her evil godmother. Or, at least, it is what we are led to believe when we enter the fantasy and dark Ana’s universe. Driven by a naive childish song, we walk by the mazes she created in her imagination, horror games and hidden desires.
