From an idyllic beginning to an aching separation, Herbie, a heartbroken panda, recalls his love story with Rice. Through breathtaking animation, Glimpse weaves a dreamlike and moving tale of a couple’s painful breakup.

Alone in his studio, Herbie, an introverted cartoonist, recalls the highs of his relationship with Rice, an aspiring musician. Played by Taron Egerton and Lucy Boynton, the voices of the two protagonists – human beings in animal bodies – embody the intensity of a bond that fades with the passing years. Glimpse is a journey into Herbie’s memories and regrets, an intimate tale of the pain of breaking up.
