Max Gilardi worked on this? You'd think I'd recognize his voice. This was one surreal cartoon. I have no idea why there's giant worms in it. Well, they're pretty cool. And scary.
You really are setting up a great story here. I can associate with this girl. I know what it's like to be alone. She doesn't even have any siblings. The animation is gorgeous too.
Does the mentioned "disease" go by any name?
And THAT is why I don't trust doctors like him.
