Alma is a dark fantasy horror short film from Spain that was produced by the ex-Pixar animator Rodrigo Blaas. The word alma in Spanish means soul. The film is about a girl named Alma who wanders into a deserted store in Barcelona. It would be an excellent creepy MovieTalk for around Halloween or during the winter months.
