A visit to a hypercritical world, where people continually hurl insults at each other, creating a poisonous atmosphere that leads to a spiral of violence. In a symbolic downward journey through a garage, this animated film leads the viewer through broken-down cars, pizzas used as missiles and abnormally large flowers, finally arriving at a level where the shared pain of loss offers a way to peacefully connect with others.
