Drop City (2016) by Hsiang Yeh is a four-minute animation, which depicts a pangolin, who tries to escape the rigid dictates of society by taking a unique path. However, her attempts are thwarted when the weight of her responsibilities force her to abandon the free-spirited path in favor of a prescribed route. Rendered in a richly layered and textured visual style, the story reminds viewers of the choices life demands.
