This beautiful example of Baltic (Latvian) stop-motion begins with a depiction of the role of industry in a changing landscape: a snowy forest scene is obliterated, and a city pops up in its place. In the centre of the city square is a park in which reside a group of wild animals. The majority of the narrative involves the animals doing their utmost to participate in civic and social life: they assist the humans by working in a myriad of different roles to be paid in cash. As they go about their roles, the film depicts a variety of commonplace interactions in normal life: child-raising, nightlife, street food vendors. The twist is revealed at the end as the animals come together in the square at night to count their acquired funds. The big pile of cash in the middle of the square is enough to bulldoze the city and return to the wilderness. The film closes with the animals eradicating the urban space and bringing back their old habitat. While the film represents the issue of cultural heritages in its representation of a binary between nature/city and animal/human, the thrust of the narrative depicts subversive approaches to work.
