When Warple moves into his new house by the seaside, he discovers his neighbour, Hilda, looking out towards the horizon each night, searching for a glimpse of her long-lost husband. When loneliness, curiosity and a far-off flickering light brings them together, the two elderly friends embark on a surprising journey to reconcile their pasts and find what might lie within their futures.
Make Mend and Do bring their unique blend of puppetry, film, music and live animation to create a story that is both moving and technically stunning in equal measures.
