Office fox Fiona struggles with her phone addiction. Will she succumb to it? Temperamental bunny Barbara will not give her sugar daddy, Nestor, what he wants until he has taken her to dinner. When forest animals invade our cities, the world is left in disarray. In this metaphorical tale, the animal characters represent behaviours that are easily discernible in our society, while the theatrical atmosphere leans toward absurdity and exaggeration. This obscure short pinpoints postmodern tropes of consumerism, eroticism, and art with an homage to the theatre stage and references to literature.
