This is a 12-minute 1975 short film for children, written and drawn
by Barbara Dourmashkin. Carrie is a little girl with an unusual
problem: whenever she feels small or says "I can't", she shrinks.
One day her kite gets stuck in a tree, and she asks her family
members to help her get it down; when they tell her to do it
herself, she says, "But I can't"... and shrinks. By the time she
goes back outside, she is so tiny she can ride on the back of a
butterfly. The wise butterfly teaches her that, "If you try to do
things, you may find that being small is in your mind." Carrie goes
on an adventure in which she learns the truth of the butterfly's
words and grows back to normal size.
