Clever script. It's quite good for a short. The curiosity of the child reflects questions we all have asked and continue to ask. The snowman is an appropriate symbol for a teacher. He is wise, listens and is witty, with an edgy sense of humor. The brief escape into imagination, projecting snowmen and angels, is clever as part of their communication. The script is short, well developed as the child questions life and death, essence, heaven and looks at solutions which lie within her as the snowman points out before the fade out. This, if made into a short film - animated, puppetry or with live actors, should be viewed with family. This is a subject that needs to be shared as the questions raised and philosophy given are not easily answered or understood. They should be talked about and this story, with its clean characterizations, dialogue and resolve with the little girl going into the house to hug and be hugged by her father, is a story to be watched together. I recommend this for ages 8 to 12 and give it 4 out of 5 stars. Reviewed by Juror #11.

A young girl attempts to comprehend her mother's death, with the help of her snowman friend.

Note: Script is in the very early stages of being animated as a personal project and is not attached to any production studio. I am open to collaborating with a production studio, however.
