In ZERO, an animated short, people are born with numbers (0-9), creating a pecking order in society, with the zeroes cruelly abused both physically and mentally. Then two zeroes fall in love and their love creates something new that earns the others’ admiration. Unfortunately, the cruel society is not torn down in favor of something more egalitarian, but rather defeated at its own game, resulting in the film making a nice point but missing a larger one. Check it out in its entirety below.
