This film humorously depicts the everyday life of a parent and child who live on a garbage landfill in the suburbs, but doesn’t tell a clear story. Instead, it contains some experimental aspects, with the artist freely stringing together diverse emotions and ideas here and there on impulse. By mixing 2D animation techniques with 3DCG techniques, he seeks to create a unique worldview.
