This short film evolved after a simple idea of a ladybird who wants to discover if his ‘Love’ truly loves him. After an emotional journey of ups and downs he picks the last petal - ‘SHE LOVES ME!’ He jumps around in euphoria but the flower plays a trick on him - and grows another petal - which means...’NOT’. His disappointment and anger is truly visible and he cries deep into the night.
