Worm is a funny, gentle story about an earthworm who accidentally discovers life above the ground. Worm lives underground, munching through the earth and life is pretty predictable — or so he thinks.

Worm is also a playful meditation on the way we perceive the world, and how our understanding and expectations are often limited by our particular experiences and point of view.
