Synopsis

In Competition

Shot using a unique technique of frame-by-frame painting similar to rotoscope animation, and displaying an impressionist style that borders on abstraction, ‘Toto’ is a dark, eerie story that takes place one sunny summer’s day. While his mother is busy hanging out clothes to dry, a boy meets a mysterious man who deceitfully lures him into the darkness and brings about an unexpected end to his childhood.
