This animated short by Torill Kove marks the NFB’s 73rd Oscar® nomination! With a bright palette and witty dialogue, the film tells the charming story of a seven-year-old girl and her sisters, who ask for a bicycle knowing full well that their loving yet unconventional parents will likely disappoint them. Torill Kove’s previous films, My Grandmother Ironed the King’s Shirts (1999) and The Danish Poet (2006), also received Oscar nominations, with the latter taking home the prize in the Short Film (Animated) category in 2007.
