StopTrik International Film Festival is dedicated to stop motion techniques of hand-made, spatial animation as puppet film, claymation, object or photography manipulation, animation of loose materials (such as salt, sand etc), pixilation, traditional cut-out and many more. The list of sub-genres could be complemented with such exceptional techniques as animation of lights, fire, yarns, threads. Artists' imagination is limitless and so we can be neither orthodox nor strict while defining the term "stop motion". The ultimate goal of this unique annual gathering is to admire and celebrate artistry of hand-made, spatial animation together with all the other drifters of the surreal, absurd or merry highways who are ready to pursue frame by frame illusion.

Ukrainian wasteland. A girl, whose only treasure is a painted Easter egg, is shocked, as her grandmother puts a freshly slaughtered chicken on the table. Confronted with death for the first time, she leaves the house, questioning her tranquil life, only to face a new tragedy that will force her to give up her treasures.

Ukrajinska puščava. Dekle, katerega edini zaklad je pobarvano velikonočno jajce, je pretreseno, ko njena babica postavi na mizo sveže zaklanega piščanca. Prvič soočena s smrtjo zapusti hišo in se sprašuje o svojem spokojnem življenju, ko se sooči z novo tragedijo, zaradi katere se bo morala odpovedati svojemu zakladu.
