Luka: Info and Credits




A young boy called Luka  steps into a timeless world of mishap adventure in a moment of distraction. 

He's fascinated by anything that flies, and while on his way  to do an errand, he catches sight of a balloon in the sky and runs off to follow  it.

Captivated by the image, he fails to realise he has snagged his oversized  orange sweater on an old country gate.

A taught orange line of wool is left in his path,  which unbeknown to him, in turn creates a domino effect of pure chaos in his  wake.
