A boy and his sister are nearly eaten by their father and they rush out of the house. They run away with their father's black car and wind up in the wilderness, where they meet a Giant and a Witch. This animation film in black & white charcoal drawings uses the sound of a bass guitar and combines a Japanese Manga feel with a fairy tale by the Brothers Grimm.
