Loneliness, curiosity and a far-off flickering light bring two elderly friends together to embark on a surprising journey to reconcile their pasts and find what might lie within their futures.
Using puppetry, music, film and live animation, Make Mend and Do create a story that is both moving and technically stunning in equal measures.
"imaginative and exquisite" ★★★★★ -The Times
