Light Sight (animation)
Seyed M. Tabatabaei Iran
M.E., the character of the story, is born inside a room made of varied sized spheres and brightened by a floating light. While M.E. is greatly astonished by the light, the spheres start glittering with colorful displays and attract him to themselves. M.E. loses himself playing with the spheres, which now respond to the commands of his hands. He Suddenly notices the light. In an effort to bring the light under his command too, he orders it arrogantly. With the disobedience of the light, M.E. pulls out the surrounding spheres selfishly and climbs them to reach the light. Just before he could reach it, he becomes imprisoned amongst the spheres.
With a merciful touch of the light, M.E. is freed from that misfortune. This leads to the greater fascination of M.E. to the light and his now more modest effort towards seizing it. The disturbance of the spheres in the way of M.E. reaching the light, leads towards a severe battle between them; a battle that ends with the incarceration of him within the spheres. Surrendered and oppressed, a miraculous drop of his tear, changes the nature of spheres and M.E. himself to a peaceful state; a peace that ultimately enables him to attain the light.
