In a room full of torn walls, a woman recalls some ups and downs of love while she is stroking the scar on her leg, waiting for the paint to dry. “Girl in the Water” is a hand-drawn animation, which is feminine and at a slow narrative rhythm, painted in watercolor and pastel frame by frame. The warm characteristic of hand drawing contrasts quite markedly with the distress that the main character suffers. The film talks about the convalescence of broken hearts. Through the process of fixing the wall, viewers are able to experience the journey of convalescence.
