“Manivald, a fox, is turning 33. Overeducated, unemployed and generally uninspired, he lives with his overbearing, retired mother and spends his days learning piano while she makes his coffee and washes his socks. It is an easy life, but not a good one. Their unhealthy co-dependence is about to collapse when the washing machine breaks down and Toomas, a sexy and adventurous wolf repairman, arrives to fix it, and them.”

Directed by Chintis Lundgren, Estonia/Croatia/Canada, 2017. Produced by Chintis Lundgreni Animatsioonistuudio, Adriatic Animation, and National Film Board of Canada.
