Azdion presents a film by L James: Lūdō

A Critter kicks around a ball in a forest. They accidentally kick the ball far away. It bounces down a slope. The Critter watches the ball fall down, then jumps down the slope to get it.

The Critter reaches the bottom of the slope. They find that a Beast in a cave has taken the ball. The Critter asks the Beast to return the ball. The Beast refuses. The Critter asks more forcefully. The Beast hesitates, but eventually gives the ball back to the Critter.

The Critter is happy and begins walking away with the ball. They notice the Beast seems sad. The Critter turns around and sees the Beast retreating into the cave. The Critter thinks for a moment. They throw the ball back to the Beast.

The Beast is surprised and turns around to look at the Critter. The Critter throws their arms up playfully. The Beast grins and passes the ball back to the Critter, who kicks it back to the Beast.
