Animated Shorts Competition presented by IMDbPro

Sprout

A scientist lives alone in a large mansion, controlling every aspect of his life with a series of machines that allow him to have no interaction with the outside world. After he accidentally creates a plant creature that takes the form of a baby, his bond with it opens him up to a connection he previously refused to have. As the creature gets older and tries to go outside, the scientist stops it, until one day it grows to a size he can no longer control. As he tries to contain the creature, it breaks free and swallows him whole before bringing him on a journey through the outside world where he learns that it is not as threatening as he may have previously thought.
