A six-minute animated short film by Bastiaan Schravendeel is simply about a lady named Esra missing her train late one evening, however, a discarded, living Rubik's cube tries to get her attention in an attempt to get solved.

This short animated film is undeniably relatable and provides a 'slice-of-life' observation of humanity while the theme's old and new, analogue vs digital, technology and non-technological underline the story plot. I found the Rubik's cube tugging at my heartstrings by wanting nothing more than to fulfil its purpose and be solved while – in a sense – make friends along the way.

The director of the films shares his challenges by explaining: “The biggest challenge was to create a genuinely believable, likeable and relatable character from a Rubik’s cube without making it about anything other than it being a Rubik’s cube. I’ve always liked films that manage to evoke emotion and personality from objects that usually don’t have any, especially if it can be done without dialogue.”
