Different from the resurrection plots of other works, the film shows the resurrection of the dolls directly in front of the protagonist, which also changes the plot into a story. It is more flexible and subjective, and it also makes the interaction more interesting and direct. Of course, the film still lacks the sophistication and rigor of Hollywood animations, and it is not...

Surprisingly, the nickname of a little doll inside turned out to be the same as my ID. Fortunately, it wasn't Beto, too...
