Plot summary:
An animated musical with apocalyptic undertones. The story is divided into four episodes that takes place in a supermarket, a long term hotel, a call center and a hamburger restaurant. The characters, portrayed as animals, perform musical numbers with singing and dancing. The episodes varies both in story and mood, and spans from cheerful tap routine to nightmarish black.
