A boy travels across an island on a motorcycle, trying to escape a dark spirit and get back home.
Along the way he makes a series of connections with different animals and reﬂects on the possible ways he ended up on the island. Part dream, part reality, Away explores our common, universal need to ﬁnd a connection. The multiple-award-winning film took the prestigious Contrechamp Award at Annecy International Animation Film Festival 2019.
