Madame Tutli-Putli and her many luggage board a train. She is alone among many strangers. She's sitting opposite a crude former tennis star. The train stops to wait for another passing train. Three mysterious thieves sneak on board and release sleeping gas. She wakes up into a nightmarish situation. Her luggage and the other passengers are all gone. She sees an image of someone cutting out the liver of another passenger.
This National Film Board of Canada animated short received an Oscar nomination. This is all about the visual look. The stop-motion animation looks creepy. The human eyes really make it stand out. This would be a great horror but it needs a well written story. This short is more experimental. There is a possibility of a great style for a longer film with a more compelling story.
