The Kid Should See This

The Girl and the Fox

Ilona is a nine-year-old girl who lives in the wilderness with her mother and father. Food is running low, and when a mysterious fox starts killing their livestock, she has no choice but to track down the strange creature in order to ensure the survival of her family.

Written and directed by Tyler Kupferer, now at Disney Animation Studios, this is The Girl and the Fox (2011), a wordless tale about survival and how perceptions can change from time and experiences.
