Synopsis: This short animation is adapted from the legend of a waitinghusband stone statue where the plot of turning into the stone in the legend indicates the deep feelings of the wife who longed for the return of her husband and conveys a strong mythological flavor. The short animation dips down deeper into the connotation of the legend. The story starts with the war during which the woman and her husband are compelled to separate from each other. Out of her longing for the return of her husband, the restless woman leaves home to find her husband, regardless of her own life or death. The act of longing turns from passive to active. This short animation is one with strong decorative style and the innovative part of this short animation is its use of patterns including the lines of the Chinese color ceramics and geometrical symbols, etc., which not only enriches the picture but also drives the story forward.
