“VERGE” is an animated short about a small, gawky, newly born green sea turtle, who falls behind his siblings on his voyage to the sea. As he arduously tries to scramble to the ocean, a massive wave and discarded trash smacks him back to the shore, giving him a series of challenges. The short explores how navigating a very short distance can be the hardest part of a newborn turtle’s life.
