TEDDY'S END is an anti-war movie.  It is about the horrors of war, and the affect which violent acts of war have on the lives of young children.

The short film follows the main character, represented by death, to a Warfield close by a destroyed village.  He arrives there shortly after the last soldiers died in battle and is about to do his duty.  By doing so he goes through a sequence of visions, or flashbaks, in which he sees the climatic events which have taken place on this very battle field.
 
The viewer observes Death going through a series of emotions.  These emotions convey to the viewer symbolically that, even Death himself cannot comprehend why the humans are constantly at war with each other, causing so much pain and suffering in the world.
