The Obvious Child (Stephen Irwin | 12 min.)

Official Link:

The complicated relationship between a rabbit and his troubled owner, a young girl. The rabbit worships the girl in a god-like way but he is confused by her actions. The girl is trying to send her dead parents to heaven. She is a violent, mixed-up individual with strange ideas regarding religion an how best to please God. The film explores childhood delusions and the confusion that religion can cause in a developing mind.
