In a desperate attempt to get back to its body, an amputated hand escapes from its dissection lab and journeys across Paris. It fights off sewer rats and navigates the city streets, quickly becoming a sympathetic protagonist. Flashbacks to the hand’s previous life show his own body, Naoufel, growing up and falling in love, slowly giving answers to the cause of the separation between limb and body. The artful animation is uniquely captivating and poetic, providing a touching account of physical and emotional loss and quickly proving to be more than just a quirky cartoon.
