Stella is a short film made with Passion Animation Studios in partnership with Re-Engage and Mcasso Music.

For many of us, Christmas is undoubtedly the most wonderful time of the year. But for over half a million older people, the season is not something to look forward to. Re-engage, the only charity committed to tackling loneliness amongst over-75s, and Passion Animation Studios beautifully depict the silent suffering of those with no choice but to spend the season alone.

If you would like to support Re-engage, you can donate to their Big Give Christmas fundraiser, through which all donations will be doubled until noon, Tuesday 10th December, or visit their website
