Carrot tells the story of a generous little white rabbit who shared delicious carrots with her
neighbours and met another hungry little gray rabbit. Although only the last carrot was left, the
little white rabbit gave it to the little gray rabbit. Then, she went home and replanted the second
batch of carrots. This time, her neighbours came to the little White Rabbit’s house to collect carrots
when the carrots were ripe, and Little White Rabbit still distributed carrots to her neighbours. There
was only the last carrot left in the field, and the little gray rabbit appeared again. The hungry little
white rabbit hesitated whether to give the little gray rabbit this carrot. At this time, her neighbours
discovered that the little white rabbit was unwilling to share carrots with the weak little gray
rabbit. In the end, they punished the little white rabbit in their own way and left.
It’s a story with so many themes, including profit and justice. I hope my story will make the
audience think about some questions. When self profit conflicts with other’s profit, how do we
choose? Is what we think of as justice the real justice? In the process of creating this work, I never
let myself stop thinking about these questions. This experience has taught me to understand how
things are before evaluating them, and I also understand the importance of learning to reject

In China, there is a saying called “go home often “. As a student in a foreign country, I always encounter difficulties. Whenever this time, it will let me recall my parents far away in China. They have taught me to be brave, generous, and strong. When I was young, they were always my haven, giving me love and care. And all that they gave, has been supporting me to be able to face frustration brave forward. I put my feelings into my first animated film. In the process of making this film, I also encountered all kinds of difficulties, but my parents’ call always gave me the strength to persist. This film will give me the courage and strength to move on when I encounter difficulties again in the future.
