Why is it that everything the mother does leads the family from bad to worse? I mean: she took them to the forest and did not immediately flee the forest when the girl ran to her, obviously telling the mother about being attacked by a monster in the forest , strike one. She led them across the crumby rock bridge and up a slippery incline, causing the boy to fall and die while she only looked after the girl, strike two. And she didn't immediately run when the boy, whom she already knew was dead, reappeared in front of her MADE OF LIGHT, just like the monster. This of course led to the death of the girl. strike three.

However, I did enjoy the animation style, and the music just fit so well with the story that it almost seems like they were made for eachother. ( if they were then this has been a derp moment).

Beautiful. Astonishing. Shouldn't have just a 4.37, it was probably because half the voters were scared. The title also gives away the ending a bit... :c
