Willy returns with his sick mother to the naturist community where he spent his childhood. When she dies, he flees into the forest haunted by memories. By losing himself, he will find absolute love. Willy’s story is everyone’s story. The farewell to his mother, the passage to maturity, the regrets, the things he’s never said and never done – everything reappears in an unsustainable whirl, in which the only solution is to fly into the emptiness of the Universe. Delicate and tactile like the wool that makes up the characters, the environment and the universe, Oh, Willy… is a further proof of the extraordinary ability that animation has to transform inanimate things into feelings.

Oh Willy…

Oh Willy…
