Duration: 5 minutes

A boy finds a ring of invisibility and must decide what to do with it in this animated parable exploring the concept of morality and where our motives to do good come from. Part of a series of five fun and engaging short films that explore fundamental philosophical concepts through everyday questions that children ask, and adults often struggle to answer.

The films provide a springboard into wider philosophical exploration and debate in the classroom and beyond. Each film consists of a beautifully animated parable, intercut with a variety of different children's responses.

The series explore concepts such as morality, identity, perception and equality and aim to help Key Stage 2 students to think laterally and creatively.
