A frame-by-frame animation that follows New Yorkers during a day in quarantine. Narrated by Governor Cuomo's words on being New York Tough, and dedicated to all essential workers that were assigned to the frontline during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Also, I wanted to value the strength and courage of essential workers.
