Sam's dad is constantly leaving on business trips. Since there aren’t so many opportunities to connect, Sam bonds with his dad over the finer points of efficiently packing a suitcase, a skill that he's naturally adept at. Effective travel preparation is elevated to the level of high art in this heartwarming and dry humoured stop motion animation, which just happens to be nominated for an Academy Award.

Themes: family (father/son), death, memory

Advisory: A funeral scene is handled with humour.
