Anton’s head is bursting with thoughts. The gardener is seething with anger: who has trampled her flower beds? In the park Anton is looking for someone to play chess with.

But what if both of them are looking for the same thing? © 2016 VIRAGE FILM in co-production with SRF Schweizer Radio und Fernsehen Distribution, World Sales: Awards: – FANTOCHE 2016 Swiss Audience Award – FANTOCHE 2016 Swiss High Risk Jury Award – Encounters Short Film & Animation Festival 2016 – Animated Grand Prix Award – BALKANIMA 2016 – Special Mention – Animalada 2016 – Sevilla Animation festival Audience Award – Solothurner Filmtage 2017 – 1st Audience Award (Swiss animation competition) – Athens Animfest 2017 – Special Mention – Stockholm Experimental & Animation Film festival 2016 – 3rd Audience Award – Kolkata Shorts International Film Festival 2017 – Special Mention – Silhouette Festival 2017 – Children Audience Award – Sedicicorto International Film Festival – LUMINOR ANIMALAB (best animation) award Festivals: 2016 – Turku Animated Film Festival (Finland) – FANTOCHE Animation Film Festival (Baden, CH) – Encounters Short Film & Animation Festival 2016 (Bristol, UK) – BALKANIMA European Animated Film festival (Serbia) – ANIMATOU Int.
