A moth is seen fluttering by a candle in the night. We cut to a close-up of a sock puppet of the moth, which then utters most of the ‘To be or not to be’ soliloquy from Hamlet, though this rendition ends with the words ‘The rest is silence’. The moth flies into the flame. The end.

A rather poignant effort, artfully done with effective changes in camera angle.
