A young girl turns into a knight who fights against the dragon terrorizing her mother and father. However, the dragon is transformed into an infant smaller than herself. Will she be able to become an infant? The girl pulls out the plastic nipple from the infant’s mouth and asks this question, but her wish does not come true. This playful animated film uses childlike drawings to create an explosion of liveliness. A short tale of heroism for the audience who might share the experience of having to welcome a monster, who was in fact a new younger sibling. (Kim Joon-yang)
