Dave Eggers' spooky campfire tale "Francis" first debuted on the radio program This American Life, and now you can watch the story of a girl's misadventure at a lake as an animated film.

This American Life invited six writers to create short stories on the theme of "adventure," and "Francis" is one of those stories. Richard Hickey directed this adaptation, adding a visual element to Eggers' radio story.
