Whatever The Weather.  A girl in a daily struggle for survival 

Minimalism and contrast are the two main aesthetic pillars that shape this animated short film about a girl in a daily struggle for survival trapped in an asphyxiating domestic reality.

Wally’s childhood is increasingly turned upside down by her mother’s alcohol addiction. She experiences the excesses and consequences of addiction first hand.

Desperately, the eight-year-old tries to keep up normality in her own life and the life of her family by any means. A roller coaster ride between helplessness, excessive demands and desperation begins.
