A skinny and quirky water drop named Philly is born in a cloud over Denmark. He lands and comes to life among other droplets. Philly meets the girl drop Lilly and together they explore their materiality. As the sun reappears the drops are confronted with the fact that the rain cannot last forever. Fear spreads. But Philly’s naive and curios personality makes him different than the other drops. Together he and Lilly sets out to confront their destiny and find out what happens when they step out into the sun. In an imaginative universe animation director Karsten Kjærulf-Hoop brings hand-painted watercolor figures to life and tells a life-affirming story about the cycle of life.
