Day after day, even the boy is lonely however he works very hard to keep his daily routine implemented.All the efforts he does is just waiting for the day coming... At the time of loneliness, people mistakenly believe that love can eliminate the feeling of that. Thus, we try and pursue love or be loved, and our willingness to pay the price, and even greater to do everything. In fact, all actions and aims are to please him or her and eager to give back.

    A Musical Animated Memoir set in London 1968-73 A reflection and re-creation of the years that shaped who I am. A time when protest and resistance were part of everyday life. What was personal - politicized when people came together to fight for their rights. The actions of Students, the Women’s Movement, Gay Liberation, Squatters and Claimants Unions, provide a documentary framework for what are in essence personal memories, a child’s POV. The political message is traced through the means of communication; hand drawn comics, screen- printed posters, leaflets, placards, papers, pamphlets and the underground press. They reflect the concerns of the time, relate directly to what’s going on today and feel just as relevant 50 years on. An exercise in trace memory associated with home. A sensory journey through the textures, colours and sounds of childhood, re-constructed.
