The lives of four lively Arctic hares take a turn after discovering a strange new creature

For a short animated film, Mishou packs a lot of heart! When an adorable dog gets lost in the Arctic, four hares try to help him find a way back home. Using a combination of miniature models and 2D animation, director Milen Vitanov artfully tells this story of friendship. Mishou is perhaps my favorite short animation I’ve seen.
