Latteship is a 3D animated short created by Flora Hsing-Fang Tsai and Daishi Takishima. The animation story follows Sigri and Kona, two otters who have opposite personalities. They must learn to accept each other to cooperate in order to run a small but popular coffee truck - Sigri Coffee. The story’s theme comes from an African proverb “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”
