In the fantastical animated short-film Sophia, a naïve young woman lives in her own frame of mind but she needs to break free of her illusions and leave her past behind - like old, faded pictures on the wall. Sophia is drawn to the city and charmed by a stranger who showers her with affection and promises. But things are not always what they seem to be.
