What if all the stars go out?

What does one do

when all of the lights

go out and stars

begin to disappear?

For orphan Tim,

who is terrified of the dark,

he puts it upon himself

to take care of this mystery

in order to properly

return to slumber.

The premise is Nocturna,

a 2007 trip

through dreamland

and Night World,

visiting Sandmen,

night guardians,

enchanters, and shepherds

in charge of cat brigades.

This wonderfully done

animated film

might have slipped under

your radar,

as the independent

Spanish-French film

was quietly released

a decade ago,

but it still holds

up in 2017.

Find it online

if you can.

It's worth every megabyte

of memory.
