In 2008, Erica Harrison was hit by a car.
She didn't walk for six months afterwards and faced the possibility of losing her leg.
So naturally, she began writing a comic story in rhyming verse.
Five years later, the story that began as a way of coping with loss, A Cautionary Tail,
has been brought to life as an animated short film starring Cate Blanchett, David Wenham and Barry Otto.
This is Erica's story.
