The Brief Flight of the Dragonfly

Allegorical narrative on transformations of life in the continuity of time. This story brings the symbolism of aspects essential of existing and living. It talks about friendship, differences, change, aging, spirituality and love.

Three childhood friends in an imaginary and fantastic society, they begin to realize the differences which grows between them. One of them discovers that maturing is the greatest science of life and can lead to astonishing paths.

Life that re-creates within the own life as an evolutionary force. What we know as dragonfly it's just a fraction of your existence. Live first as larva, after as a small aquatic creature. When flying, it's already completely adult and it has little time then.

The dragonfly's journey is like the own human life, because we live most of our time like these bugs, immature, without even knowing the possibility of our greatest flight.

This fascinating process of life shared with the others who rebuilds and turns into something bigger.
