    Excellent, precise , to the point and poignant.

  • Peggy says:

    Normally, when stories are told, the content becomes separated from the affect. Individuals may tell stories from the old days, but they no longer have a connection to what they felt at the time. The ‘Dallas’s Story’ links precisely story and affect. It is very touching – very amazing animation!
