The Gate is a four-minute 2D animation. Genderless children are raised inside the walls of a rigid city. At the age of 12, the children are forced to become “adults,” and give up their emotions and memories. When they become adults, their faces are hidden by masks, and they lose their individuality. A child, K-12012, and their friend, J-12606, accidentally discover a unique device in the library, which reveals the history of their city and allows them to escape.
