Stays Forever

Vera Nevanlinna

An animation about eternity. A stone is sitting on a cliff. The sea is surging behind. After a while the stone starts to laugh and breaks into pieces. The pieces disappear, only the cliff and the sea remain in the picture. The stone arrives back, one piece at the time, laughing. It puts itself together again, grunts and sits silently. The evening arrives, the stone is still sitting on the cliff and the sea is surging behind.
