Trapped in a pandemic, urban animals struggle with addiction, boredom, temperamental outbursts, cleanliness, and fetishism in this obscure postmodern film about the Anthropocene and consumerism.

Synopsis: When forest animals invade our cities, the world is in disarray. Office fox Fiona struggles with her phone addiction. Will she succumb to it? Temperamental bunny Barbara only gives her stag sugar daddy Nestor his special massage, after he dines her and plays the big spender. This obscure short film pinpoints postmodern tropes of consumerism, eroticism, and art with an homage to the theater stage and references to literature. The film uses a fantasy language and needs no subtitles.
