Two boys are drawing lines when they accidentally bump into each other. What if, instead of two separate lines, they make one big one? They do and magic happens. They play with the line, and it’s all fun and games until one boy accidentally pulls the other one down. He laughs, making the boy who fell mad. The angered boy yanks the line hard in retaliation. They pull and tug until suddenly the line snaps, creating a rift between them. After a few moments, the boys walk towards the end of the rift and find a way to turn the crack into a path. Friends again, they laugh and play, stronger together.
