'Radiance' is a short, semi-autobiographical animation that uses an exquisite, almost otherworldly hand-drawn style. The story centres around a very young girl who is coping with the loss of her much-beloved grandmother. Deep in thought, she begins to recall fond memories of her grandma, which transports her on an enchanting journey of self-realisation, leading her to ultimately find a sense of contentment and peace through acceptance of her grief.
