The Moon and the Night

This tear-jerking short takes places in rural Hawaii following the life of a young girl, Mahina and her main companion -her dog, Po. As Mahina's struggling father rejects her pleas to keep her beloved pet out of the ring, she realizes how far he may go. But will a daughter's sorrow be enough to sway a father's greed?
