Animation work about a girl and her friend, an elephant. A toy of an elephant that the girl is playing with disappears from her sight and reappears as a real elephant. The two carelessly play with nothing to bother them. One day, however, the girl is intrigued by a small ship floating in the ocean, and, drawn to what is beyond the water, stares the direction for a while. She runs back to the elephant, but when the boat approaches the beach, she parts the sad-looking elephant and departs on the boat. Childhood ends sometimes imperceptibly for us, and no matter how good it is, the moment to part comes. The puppet and cutout characters depict that adulthood is an inevitability in life for every person.[5 min. 31 sec.]
