It’s a quiet night and a married couple lies calmly in their bed. They both have secrets, though. She leaves the house at night and goes to the zoo, he follows her stealthily. What the wife is doing there is beyond all understanding. The husband decides to have his revenge. The animation invokes “Sin City’s” unique aesthetics and the stereotypical noir voiceover to take on the topical matter of vegetarianism and veganism in a grotesque manner. Yu-Fei Kao brilliantly plays around with conventions, which despite the short running time allows him to build audience expectations and then let them down. However, the punchline is so subversive that all that is left at the end is to smile.
