Animation Film | NID | 2016


Directed & Written by

Neeraja Raj

'Stars,' is a heartwarming 2D animated story about the power of kindness. Inspired by the antics of my little brother, it follows a young boy and his best friend (a silly little pug) spreading joy by placing star-shaped stickers on unsuspecting passersby - giving their vote of approval for the day.
