About the movie

In this compelling portrait of the routine of a slaughterhouse, two protagonists, a young punk and his dog, are trying to find their path. The dog is the only one who sees the animals arrive at night and witnesses when the young man leads them to their deaths. Everything blends together with dining, after-sex moments and dips in the river. This delicately crafted film, somewhere between documentary and fiction, places humans and animals on the same level: naked and driven by instinct. The young punk is aware of the similarity and tries to explain to his dog how the abattoir works. The animals are transformed into characters capable of understanding, enjoyment, suffering and even tears.
