An animated story about the uniqueness and pitfalls of the sibling bond. The elder sister lives a miserable existence, stuck in the middle of the desert, unable to care for herself. Only her head and hands stick out from the ubiquitous sand. With no hope of freeing the girl from her sandy captivity, it becomes an unfair lot of the younger sister to care for her. To what extent can you break free from the universally acknowledged obligation to be always of assistance to your sister or brother?
