Owner’s Portrait

  • Argentina
Audio Tracks 

There's an island far away from the map where there are no more humans, money or work. Only remains a community of cats that transmits a libertarian message through antennas, which immediately spread that frequencies throughout the planet. The dogs are the first beings to hear those sounds. Meanwhile, the workers lose their lives working in the factory. In New Year's Eve, under the enormous fireworks all over the sky, domestic animals take advantage and start to escape from their prisons, to create from the ruins their own freedom. But the owners go out to look for them. In that quest, they listen the voices of past revolutions and wonder if a new world can be built.
