This animation is an interpretation of a fairy tale from the Isle of Man that was told to Sophia Morrison, who recorded oral folklore, transcribing them into her book "Manx Fairy Tales." Like many Manx fairy tales, it may have been a way to discourage people from going out and about at night during the height of the smuggling that was so common there hundreds of years ago. Or maybe the Little People really do exist in a parallel world to our own. The narrators' voices add a rich texture to this piece.
