“Warm snow” is an animation short about the relationship between a father and his grown up daughter. It starts out in an ordinary situation with the father and daughter sitting at the kitchen table. The daughter is waiting for her food to get warm and is annoyed by her father’s questions and suggestions. The situation then develops and transforms into a surrealistic world full of love and pain.
