2003 / Prod. Joshua M. Greene
54 min., color animation

Based on a picture book by Peter Spier, here is the story of a girl and her grandfather on an imaginative journey exploring what makes people fight: is it difference? If we were all the exactly same, would we get along? Some of the animation here is stunning, especially a claymation sequence featuring eerie clone-people. Features the voices of Hume Cronyn and James Earl Jones, and music by Peabo Bryson, Al Jarreau, Vanessa Williams and Chaka Khan. Recommended by my 8-year-old for all ages.
