Belly, is an animated short by Julia Pott, that tells the tale of warranted wrongdoing and the indigestible numbness that follows. It’s a gut-punching sensation we’ve all probably experienced at least once in our lifetimes, and Pott does an awesome job of illustrating and injecting her characters with fleshy (both literal and metaphorical) personalities and humor. Check out the brief official storyline as follows:

“Oscar is coming of age, against his better judgment. In doing so he must experience the necessary evil of leaving something behind, but he can still feel it in the pit of his stomach.”
