[Welcome to the Sci-Fi Lunch Break, where we'll be supplying you with a cool bit of audio/visual goodness to break up the monotony of the work day. You bring the turkey on rye, we'll bring you something out of this world to watch while you eat it.]

Okay, so today's Lunch Break is not, strictly speaking, sci-fi given that there is, well, no actual science (or conjecture) involved. The fiction part, however, brings to mind some of the creepier vibes the Twilight Zone used to send off on a regular basis.

The short in question is called Alama and was made by Rodrigo Blaas, an animator for Pixar. Note, however, that this is not an official Pixar short (it's just a tad darker than the family-friendly studio puts out). It's only five minutes long, so there's no point in explaining it all upfront, but for those that require even a bare description before they click a link...it's about a little girl who finds a shop with a doll in the front window that looks eerily like her...
