Synopsis by Nathan Southern
Writer-director Troy Morgan's dark, haunting animated short Dragon observes a young girl whose parents are killed in a sudden fire. Shipped off to an orphanage, the troubled child begins sketching orange-tongued visions of immolation - to the delight of the orphanage director, who attempts to exploit her ability for his own gain. When he grows dissatisfied and demands that her artistic output increase, she then produces an actual fire-breathing creature that outstrips everyone's control.
