The short stop motion film is about a boy who is constantly escaping his fears. Wether it be trapped in a fire, unable to swim, or unable to confront someone, the boy is either saved or escapes each obstacle. When trapped in a cage, hanging from the ceiling of a cave, a stalactite breaks off and frees the boy. The stop motion is based around the lyrics of Cages by Deas Vail. In the film, the boy is trapped in some sort of predicament. However, the boy soon falls into a whirling blur and into reality. Where he is just battling his fears in his slumber.
