Someone Good Will Find You
United States, 8 min., Color
Inspired by a short story from award-willing Israeli author Etgar Keret, Someone Good Will Find You tells the story of a well-intentioned Chinese immigrant father raising his inquisitive son in New York City, trying to school him on a lesson of saving and restraint and how to make it in this country. He shares the biblical story of Moses down the Nile. When David finds a superman costume he wants, his father decides to teach him a lesson about saving instead: he buys him a piggy bank which David must fill up with coins from chores in order to buy the costume. As David does his chores he finds himself becoming more and more attached to the pig. One evening, the father decides the pig is full enough to break. David stalls his father and comes up with some creative methods of saving the pig.
