Serenity

20 year old animator Jack Dunphy recounts the first time he fell in love– her name was Rose Cardellini. He met her in a film class in high school, a class he subsequently flunked because instead of taking notes on Citizen Kane, he was imagining Rose naked. To his amazement, Rose admitted to him that she liked him one day, and that was that. The flood gates to his heart were open, and there was no looking back. Unfortunately, during this time he was passively dating a suicidal heroin addict named Serenity. Through the aid of cut out and stop motion animation, Jack recalls the impossible decision to break up with Serenity at the risk of her killing herself, or stay with her at the risk of loosing his first love.
