The youthful folly of wanting to grow up too fast. A girl and her little sister collect accoutrements from the once Wild West. The short/narrative music video is set to a reorganization of composer Antonín Dvořák’s popular 12th String Quartet. The piece, written on a visit to the United States in 1893, incorporates impressions of the country’s melting-pot folk music and its various ethnic influences. The film blends Cowboy Pop culture and Southwestern American Indian motifs and design.
