Baking alone in her kitchen, tattered old Bunny receives a troublesome late-night visitor from the deepest woods -- or deeper. A hairy moth, as battered as Bunny is, seems to be stalking her, and her attempts to remove it only make it more insistent. What is it about this nocturnal pest that stirs her deepest fears and memories? To find out, she must go through an emotional metamorphosis that sheds a whole new light on this quirky but heart-warming tale.

We started our studio over 10 years ago with all the money we could scrape together. We struggled without pay for a long time developing software and pounding the pavement for business. Bunny started with ideas about what our software could do someday and the kinds of moves we could make with it.
