"It's all intertwined and ecosystems are collapsing. We need do something radical about it." Passionate entomologist Vojta describes the collapse of various types of ecosystems. A huge number of animal species are dying, and butterflies are amongst those that disappear the quickest. On top of this there is a secondary drama that begins to develop in Anomaly, this being the conflict between director and cameraman (who is also the films editor) both have differing standpoints over the final version of the film.

The film depicts rapidly the changing Czech landscapes that mirrors the natural environments that are in a state of flux. The question of how to adapt becomes prevalent as certain species struggle to survive in the increasingly alien environments they are presented with. Recognising the threat that the human poses to nonhuman, there are some who have attempted to rectify this violence. Anomaly documents an attempt at stabilising these conditions. One project for example, shows how a farm goes back to a traditional way of farming to simulate ideal conditions for life of certain animal and plant species. Contrasted to this the debates between director and cameraman ensue, as the pair debate the question: how to attract public attention to the genocide of butterfly in the overwhelming flood of the current media content?
