Join these characters as they learn the importance of persistence and perspective during challenging journeys.

Persistence is everything! Provided with perseverance comes perspective, that is. In one short, a vain and arrogant youth dares to enter Baba Yaga’s living house of bones. In another short, a girl learns that her mild-mannered father was a record-setting globetrotter. In the last short, two brothers re-enact their ancestor's trek in the harsh desert at their age, long ago. Pace yourself!
