Good for all ages!

This poignant and wordless animated short offers visual delight and a powerful metaphoric lesson about remembering those who are no longer with us.

In the stop-motion animation with cute, cut-out cloth puppets, a little boy visits his grandfather in the countryside and they fly a kite together. They are both made out of layers that symbolize their age. The boy has many of these layers, with his whole life ahead of him. (14 mins., digital video) Closed captioning available.
