Juried Best Animated Short

In an unknown space in an empty city covered by heavy snow, there is nothing but a revolving door that slowly spins in the Wonder Hospital. A girl enters the mysterious place that alters the way of seeing physical beauty. She is given a choice between the two images of her face, "Before" and "After." Her desire for superficial beauty leads her to chase after the luring "After" images on a path of advertisements throughout the hospital. But in the end she finds something unimaginable and irreversible and realizes that beauty is something very different from what she expected. This surreal journey is animated using 3D computer generated images combined with live action puppets.
