Running around without your spiritual power animal is insane. You wouldn't leave the house without your Mojo or Je ne sais quoi, so why are you going to try to face life's treacheries without a trusty sidekick? I mean, look at Edward Norton in Fight Club—as soon as he found his power penguin, everything else in his life worked out just fine.

And in Whole, a masterfully composed CGI short from The National Film School of Denmark, one young protagonist—her heart recently excised by an unfaithful boyfriend—must take a strange and psychedelic mystical journey through her own subconscious in search of a power animal to make her soul whole again. It's a fabulously written and animated short film.
