On the way to school, during school, and after school, Mae is taunted and chased by a few classmates. At home she faces scrutiny for not fitting in at school. As an attempt to indulge her imagination and maintain her sanity, shy Mae made a felt horse mask as a protective totem. TRiGGA reminds us of the importance of imagination as resistance against cruelty.
