Description: At twilight in a twisty old wood, a magical event takes place. By the gnarled roots of an old tree and lit by the glow of a flickering light, a romance blossoms between an unexpected couple, a Daddy Longlegs and a Red Carnation. As they and the other creatures create this surreal midnight ceilidh and dance the evening away, a malevolent spider threatens to fatally end the dance and the blossoming romance. However he only brings them closer together as the community unites to repel the danger. [synopsis from Red Kite Animation website at http://www.redkite-animation.com, last accessed 15/7/2008]
